If you’ve recently begin using reading glasses (often needed as you age), your vision and possible eye strain may be improved by using different strengths for different tasks. Got this tip today from my opthamologist.
Here’s an example. Your basic recommendation might be 2.5 strength for reading. Books and magazines are generally held close to the eye. If, however, you also use sheet music on a stand or spend time using a computer monitor, those items are probably twice the distance from your eye as a a book would be. Why not drop by your drug store and try a 1.25 or 1.50 to see if it would work as well but with less eye strain?
