ANCHOR LEAD: Forty may be the new thirty, and while pesky greys and fine lines can be taken care of in the beauty aisle of your local drugstore, options for addressing vision issues, such as reading glasses, can often make people appear older. But, now's there's help. Brian Osuch has the details. (:60) SCRIPT: Newsbreak, I'm Brian Osuch. A new survey conducted by Bausch + Lomb, in partnership with VibrantNation, Inc. found that while reading glasses appear to be an easy solution for 53 percent of women over the age of 40 who report struggling to read the text on their digital devices, almost half feel embarrassed when reaching for them. Dr. Rhonda Robinson (OD)… CUT: (Robinson) Blurred vision can result from a condition know as presbyopia, which impacts our eye's ability to focus and progresses as we age. SCRIPT: That means someone developing the condition may eventually turn to reading glasses, and that's one thing, 38 percent of women surveyed say are telltale signs that they are getting older. CUT: (Robinson) I have been impressed with the clarity of vision provided by Bausch + Lomb's recently introduced PureVision2 multi-focal contact lenses for presbyopia. Many of my patients report that these lenses allow them to see clearly at all distances and in all directions of gaze, which they find more convenient than multifocal glasses.
