Age certainly isn’t kind to our eyesight … especially once we hit our 40s. That’s when many of us begin to have difficulty with our up-close vision—and head to the local drug store to pick out multiple pairs of reading glasses.
Tired of wearing glasses and contacts? Prefer to wake up seeing everything picture perfectly? Want to toss your reading glasses in the garbage? If you are over 40 and have been told that everyone must wear glasses eventually, forget it. Get ready to see clearly now thanks to procedures that can correct your vision and make your glasses a thing of the past, like the pet rock.
