Many people live day to day with some sort of vision impairment, but there are also plenty of individuals who have perfect 20/20 vision. Everyone should have their vision checked regularly, especially since adults over forty can develop myopia as they age and find that they need reading glasses. Here at Lens Lab Express, Briarwood reading glasses as well as regular eyeglasses and contact lenses are readily available along with a vision exam.
Even if you have lived most of your life with perfect vision, your eyes are still susceptible to changes in vision over time. This becomes especially true as you get older. Adults may experience a noticeable decline in vision once they hit forty years of age or so. They may notice that they can no longer see objects up close with clarity any longer. Reading a menu or a pamphlet can suddenly seem difficult. This is because as adults age, their corneas begin to lose their elasticity as well as their shape. An eye with perfect vision will be perfectly dome shaped. Any variations in this shape will result in some sort of vision impairment. If the cornea is flatter than normal, then objects in the foreground become blurrier and more difficult to focus on. This is known as myopia or farsightedness. Briarwood reading glasses here at Lens Lab Express can provide you with the magnification you need in order to see objects up close with ease once more. Typically, reading glasses do not require intensive prescription strength, but it is still important to make sure that your prescription is precisely in line with your vision needs. Wearing the wrong prescription can result in a variety of side effects, including dizziness, headaches and other inconveniences.
Many adults develop myopia or farsightedness as they get older so any vision changes like this are usually nothing to worry about, but sometimes rapid or sudden vision changes can indicate a more serious eye issue. This is why regular eye and vision exams are so important. If you need an exam or if you simply need Briarwood reading glasses, come by Lens Lab Express today.
