When the Age Monster comes calling on baby boomers, he gradually and increasingly steals away your ability to read the fine print, because words become difficult to see up close. This “40-and-over” condition is called Presbyopia (“Prez-bye-opia”).
Fortunately, you have more options than ever before to deal with this problem. Reading glasses, whether Full Frames or Franklins (granny glasses) are one option. They work very well, but can be a nuisance to carry around constantly.
For some, Segmented Spectacle Lenses, specifically bifocals, trifocals, or occupational lenses with lines work very well. Others dislike the cosmetics of wearing “visible” bifocals.
