Reading glasses

Has anybody been got any reading glasses instead off using a magnifying glass for macular deganation,

  1. Yes. Reading glasses were suggested and after trying them I changed my regular glasses to prescription with 2.75 strength on the bottom. They make so much difference. I would recommend it. They suggested using reading glasses if I were reading a book or for long periods of time because of the constant adjustment. Good luck

    1. thanks for sharing your experience with . It makes sense that increasing the bifocal strength would make reading easier. As much as possible I enlarge text on my devices to make it easier to read. Warmly, Sharon Moore patient leader
