But the President probably wasn’t reading too much small print during the trip, as he is famously rumoured to have an aversion to being seen wearing reading glasses.
Reading glasses are nothing to be ashamed of and many of us will need some form of short-distance vision correction as we age. But the fact is that using reading glasses can be inconvenient and expensive over time, particularly if you also have to wear other types of glasses.
At Laser Eye Surgery Birmingham, we offer state-of-the-art laser eye surgery treatments to rid you of glasses and contact lenses, whatever your age.
Generally suitable for patients aged between 20 and 50, our LASIK and LASEK vision correction procedures are quick, painless and surprisingly affordable.
If you’re over 40 and have presbyopia (difficulty reading and seeing your phone), you may be suitable for the Zeiss Presbyond treatment. This can restore reading vision and remove the need to carry reading glasses around everywhere you go.
The need for reading glasses is particularly common in people aged over 50, but we can help more mature patients too. Lens replacement surgery is a highly effective treatment, which involves the gentle softening and removal of your lens by our skilled eye surgeon Mark Wevill. Your natural lens will then be replaced by one of the latest intraocular lenses, all in about 10 minutes.
If you’re tired of squinting at small print or having to keep taking reading glasses on and off, it’s time to give yourself some VIP treatment. Get in touch with us today to find out what we could do for you.
