No matter who we are, we are always getting older. With aging come handicaps we don’t experience at earlier times in life. That includes with your eyes.
As we age we may have trouble reading and notice our eyes becoming drier. That could be signs of Presbyopia, which is common for people to get after the age of 40.
If you do experience some of these symptoms here are a few tips that can help:
- For one, have a good, thorough eye evaluation. You eye doctor will check your eye pressure, check your retina and look for other issues your eyes may be experiencing.
- Brighter lights can assist in seeing clearer while reading.
- Rest helps. If you sit in front of a computer for long periods of time, take breaks and look away from the screen for a few minutes every two hours.
- Artificial tears can help with dryness.
- Getting a pair of reading glasses can help clear up the fuzziness you get when you are trying to read such things as a newspaper or book.
Just because your eyes have gotten weaker with age doesn’t mean you can’t continue to live your live to the absolute fullest. With a few minor adjustments, you can see just as well no matter what age you are!
