How to Avoid the (Visible) Signs of Aging

Dr. Rhonda Robinson on New Technologies in Eye Care that may Keep you Looking, and Feeling, Younger

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.

According to a recent survey, reading glasses – often found in the drugstore aisle – 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 devices1; however, almost half admit to feeling embarrassed, frumpy or annoyed when reaching for them1. Help your viewers learn what to do to enable them to stop squinting at menus.

Rhonda Robinson, OD, discusses how to identify the signs of developing presbyopia and when it's time to speak to your eye doctor. She also shares new trends and technologies that may help put reading glasses out of sight for good!

1The online survey was conducted by Bausch + Lomb, makers of PureVision®2 Multi-Focal Contact Lenses for Presbyopia, in partnership with VibrantNation. The survey was designed to gauge women's perceptions of aging, particularly the role reading glasses play. 305 women over the age of 40 responded to the survey, fielded in June 2014.
