People are often surprised when they discover in their forties that the can no longer see clearly up close without reading glasses. Are there people that can avoid this problem? No. That’s because the human lens that focuses for close vision loses its elasticity with time, and there are no exceptions to this problem. If someone can see up close without glasses in their mid forties, it’s because they are nearsighted, and don’t need to focus up close. The price they pay, is that they can’t see far away without glasses. Multi -focal glasses and contact lenses are used for presbyopia, which is the loss of focusing power to compensate for this problem. At Optiexpress we offer many interesting solutions to help people see clearly up close again. We look forward to helping you too.
