Over 1,000,000 Reading Glasses Sold since 1999

Eye Exams

Don't neglect your eyes by thinking that reading glasses do not necessitate the need for regular bi-annual exams.

A problem with using pre-fabricated reading glasses has less to do with the glasses than with one of the reasons that people purchase them. Some people head to the drugstore instead of the eye doctor when they notice that it's time for a stronger correction. In fact, a recent survey of presbyopes revealed that 17 percent purchased readers because they "didn't want to bother with an eye exam."

Common sense and good eye health dictate that you should consult the eye doctor when you need a change in prescription, or at least once every two years. The need for a new pair of reading glasses may be nothing more than the natural aging process, but it might also signal that there is a serious problem with your eyes that can be treated if caught in time. Glaucoma, for example, is a serious eye disease that has no symptoms at first but can steal your vision if it's not controlled with medication.  A simple, standard test can detect it, but you'll need to visit your eye doctor in order to have the test.
