Contact Lenses and Reading Glasses Working Together

If you’re around the age of 40 you may be starting to have issues with your reading and seeing up close. That is very typical as you maybe developing a condition called Presbyopia and a pair of reading glasses maybe needed. The only thing is, you may already be a wearer of contact lenses.  So what do you do?

The first thing you will want to do is to schedule an eye exam with your eye doctor.  This exam will see how your eyes have changed and if any other issues have occurred.

If the doctor sees that the presbyopia is severe you may need to purchase a pair of prescription glasses. If though it is slight, all you need to do is purchase a pair of readers from Optx 20/20 and wear them over your contacts when reading.

But what type of readers do you choose? With the half-frame style such as the popular Ecoclear Flora frame you can look down into the lenses to view up close and look up over the lenses to see far away.

If though you spend a lot time in front of words or objects that are up close such as on a computer screen you may be better off with full sized frames such as a pair of Aviator frames that are lightweight and feature adjustable nose pads and temple tips.

No matter what style you choose, speak to a doctor ahead of time to make sure you get the best overall solution for your issue.
