One of the most common questions when it comes to eyesight is - "How do I know I need reading glasses?" If you are not entirely sure, there are a few tricks that can help answer the question - one of them is to hold a book or a newspaper farther than the usual 25 centimeters. If you cannot clearly recognize the letters, that is one of the indications that you need to go to an ophthalmologist and that you need reading glasses. The main confusion of today is the belief that the wearing of glasses should be delayed for as long as possible, as well as the belief that the premature use of glasses will preserve vision.
Reading glasses are primarily intended for people who have farsightedness, where the eyes cannot sharpen the image when looking at objects nearby. An important note is that you should not wear reading glasses while driving, as they are exclusively intended for close-up vision.
