When Is The Time To Wear Glasses?

It's normal to squint when you're looking at the sun or drug warning labels. But if you're over 40 and having trouble making out the words here or always opt for large print books and magazines, then it's time to get one. Reading glasses are easy and expensive and can help make a page in a book look like a billboard. But eventhough, your eyes might have been sending a message that something is wrong, so better see your opthalmologist or optometrist at least every 2 years (and call them immediately or go to ER with sudden vision changes). But don't fret: Most of us experience vision changes as we age. Your newfangled specs - and the fact that you knew enough to get help - may merely be signs of your oldfangled wisdom.
