Early Signs You Might Need Reading Glasses

Early Signs You Might Need Reading Glasses

Mother nature made our eyes like an auto focus video camera. As we age, the lens in your eye stiffens, and the muscle can’t auto focus the lens like it used to. This condition is called presbyopia (say that three times fast), and over time, the need for stronger and stronger reading glasses becomes a reality. Getting better with age requires seriously stylish eyewear and below are a few indications that you’ll get to start wearing Peepers.

Age and Accordion Arms

While the onset of this condition is different for everyone, it’s a good bet that you’re going to start experiencing some changes to your vision after the age of 40. If you used to be able to read the small print on a menu, book, or digital device with ease but now have to frequently adjust your arm-length to read clearly, this is a classic indication of presbyopia. Reading glasses can help!

Eye Strain and Headaches

Do your eyes hurt after you look up from your book, computer, or other close-up work? Your eyes straining to focus can cause headaches. Taking regular breaks to relax your eyes and finding Peepers in your correct strength with blue light protection will have you looking and seeing your best.

Is it getting darker in restaurants, or is it just us? If you’re finding it harder to read in dim light and you need to bust out the flashlight app on your phone to see—never fear! Peepers are here!
