As we age, our eyesight changes and we may require reading glasses to help us see clearly. However, reading glasses can actually impede our vision if we’re not using them correctly.
When we wear reading glasses with plus power, we’re actually magnifying the image and making it bigger. This can make it more difficult to see, especially if we’re trying to read small print.
The trick is to move the reading glasses away from our eyes. By doing this, we’re effectively making the image smaller and easier to see. This may seem counterintuitive, but it actually works!
So, if you’re finding it difficult to see with your reading glasses, try moving them away from your eyes. You may be surprised at how much easier it is to focus.

Why can I see better when I pull my glasses away from my eyes?
There are a few possible explanations for this phenomenon:
1. The glasses may be dirty or smudged, causing the vision to be blurry. Cleaning the lenses may improve vision.
2. The glasses may be ill-fitting, causing them to slide down the nose and obstruct vision. Adjusting the fit of the glasses may improve vision.
3. The eyeglasses may be prescribed for a different vision problem than what you are experiencing. For example, if you are nearsighted, the eyeglasses may make distant objects appear clearer, but close objects may appear blurry. In this case, you may need to consult with an eye doctor to determine if a different prescription is needed.
What is the effect of moving a plus lens closer to the eye?

Why can I see better when I tilt my glasses?
There are a few reasons why this might be happening. One possibility is that your glasses are not properly aligned with your eyes, so tilting your head allows them to line up better. Another possibility is that you have a refractive error, meaning that your eyes do not focus light properly. This can cause images to appear blurry. Tilting your head may help your eyes to better line up the incoming light, making the image clearer. If you are having difficulty seeing clearly, it is important to see an eye doctor to determine the cause and get the appropriate treatment.
Why do I have to lift my glasses up to read?
There are a few possible reasons why you may have to lift your glasses up to read:

3. You may be experiencing presbyopia, which is a natural part of aging that results in reduced close-up vision.
