Wearing reading glasses is the most common way of dealing with presbyopia

‘Wearing glasses for reading meant surrendering to old age without the least bit of a fight’ Andrea Camilleri, writer

Wearing reading glasses is the most common way of dealing with presbyopia. This is a temporary solution. The advantage to glasses is that you can do that dramatic stare or removal when deemed necessary.  

With modern options surrendering to reading glasses is not your only option. Permanent solutions include PresbyLasik and Refractive lens exchange. PresbyLasik is similar to LASIK but blended vision is used to achieve near, intermediate and far focus. This can also be used as a top-up when developing presbyopia after you had LASIK years before. When you are starting to show signs of cataracts developing or are at a more advanced age Refractive lens exchange might be a better long-lasting solution for you. The biggest advantage is never searching for your reading glasses again.
