As you age your eyes change. Most notably, adults over 40 begin to develop presbyopia which is the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability. When this occurs, you will require new vision correction solutions like eyeglasses or contact lenses. Book an appointment with Dr. Jade and Dr. Dave’s eye care office in Lloydminster to learn more about age-related vision problems. You can also visit CNIB for additional information on how vision changes as you age.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
When you are over 40, you may begin to notice that you are no longer able to read as well as you used to with your contact lenses. Multifocal contacts may be the solution. Ask Dr. Jade for more information.
Multifocal Eyeglass Lenses
Multifocal eyeglasses are also available to help your changing vision. Even if you already wear glasses, you may find yourself having trouble focusing your eyesight. Visit Dr. Jade or Dr. Dave’s office to see if multifocal eyeglasses are right for you.
Occupational Bifocals & Trifocals
When it comes to eyewear, one size does not fit all. That is why there are solutions including occupational bifocals and trifocals. Book an appointment with Dr. Jade or Dr. Dave to discover which eyeglass lens solutions fit best for your work and play. Eyeglasses can be tailored to fit your specific vision needs.
How Progressive Lenses Work
Unlike older styles of bifocal lenses, progressive lenses offer the same vision solutions without the presence of a line on the glass.
Sometimes you just need a little help reading that fine print and that’s okay. Dr. Jade or Dr. Dave can help you find the right pair of reading glasses that work with your vision needs. Custom-made reading glasses offer superior reading correction than those of pre-made, drugstore reading glasses.
Dry Eye After Menopause
As you age, the risk for dry eye increases. This is especially true for women after menopause. You can learn more about the causes and treatments of dry eye from CNIB.
