Presbyopia Age-related Vision Condition
Once you hit forties, naturally your power to focus on near objects diminishes. Your eyes become less flexible and muscles weaken. You can view farther objects clearly as before but when it comes to reading, sewing or doing any close work, you may experience blurry vision. Usually, people who never required glasses during their younger days might need reading glasses to tackle with presbyopia. However this vision condition can be corrected with perfect pair of reading glasses.
Who Need Reading Glasses?
As it is evident now, presbyopia is an aging vision problem. However as per a recent research, even the younger generation is facing this vision condition. Though they are young, their eyes turn old due to continuous exposure to harmful rays like ultraviolet emitted from sun and blue-light generated from digital devices. So no matter what is your age, if you are experiencing blurry vision and are unable to view up close, you need to opt for reading glasses. Readers help your vision by magnifying and focusing the fine print.
How to choose strength/power of reading glasses
Reading glasses power is measured in dioptre. The lowest strength is 1.0 dioptre while the highest strength is 4.0 dioptre (it’s rare to find high power). The glasses strength increase in factors of .25. So usually the readers measurement is like 1.0, 1.25, 1.50, 2.0….. 4.0. As you age your glasses strength will increase. It’s strongly recommended to get an eye checkup in a year or two and buy reading glasses, accordingly.
Below is the power recommended, based on age:
- For age between 40 - 44
Reading glasses power ranges +0.75 D to +1.00 D
- For age between 45 - 49
Reading glasses power ranges +1.00 D to +1.50 D
- For age between 50 - 54
Reading glasses power ranges +1.50 D to +2.00 D
- For age between 55 - 59
Reading glasses power ranges +2.00 D to +2.25 D
- For 60 and above age
Reading glasses power ranges +2.25 D to +2.50 D
However, getting your eyes checked by your eye doctor is always a good idea.
