Using reading glasses?

Getting older your eye will not be as flexible  when you where younger and your eyes gradually lose their ability to see things clearly up close from around  the age of 40.

 The lens becomes more rigid and this causes  difficulty in reading and other close up tasks and you may find that you hold reading materials farther away to see it clearly. 

No More Glasses

Cloudy vision?

If things look blurry, hazy and less colorful, you may have a cataract. If you have a cataract, your lens becomes cloudy. It’s like looking through a dirty window.

After cataract surgery, most people still need glasses to see near or far.
But now, new AcrySof PanOptix multi-focal lenses solve this problem.
This helps people to see near and far (and in-between) – without visual aids.
