When I saw the results of a recent study taken by Vibrant
Nation of midlife women, I was not surprised at the results. What are the top factors that make us feel
older? The top three indicators were our
clothes, hairstyles, and the need to wear glasses.
I have been wearing glasses consistently for about ten
years, so I completely agree our glasses make us feel older. My husband fought the need to have readers so
much, he would use my glasses to read the menu when we went out to eat.

restroom where the lighting is better.

The good news of modern advancements is that now there are
multi-focus contact lenses which make it possible to say good-bye to reading

lying all over the place and he no longer has to borrow my glasses.
BAUSCH & LOMB has introduced Pure Vision 2, Multi-focal
Contact Lenses for Presbyopia which may eliminate the need for reading glasses. This advanced lense
designed to improve near, intermediate, and distance vision
where it counts – in the real world.
