Did you know that 517 million people require eyeglasses for reading and other close up activities? Traditionally this statistic has been made up mostly of those in the magical “over 40” age group but as our lives become increasingly near-focused with our smart phones, tablets, laptops, and e-readers, that age line is becoming blurred. An increasing number of children are requiring prescriptions for their close vision, a problem that can greatly interfere with learning, decreasing reading retention and causing reading to become quite literally a headache instead of something enjoyable.
If you notice you or your child gets easily tired, experiences tired or dry eyes, or blurred vision while reading, schedule an eye exam today! Then bring in your new prescription and we’ll help you pick out an amazing pair of reading glasses so you can KEEP ON READING!
