Can aging cause someone with nearsightedness to have problems seeing close up only when wearing glasses/contacts?

Posted by Lornag123

I am a 43 year old female with nearsightedness.  Lately I have been having problems reading while I wear my contacts, but see close up find without them.

Eyes do change as we age. You just might need a new prescription or a different brand of contacts.  Personally I have tried several brands and some work better - maybe it's my eyes or maybe it's the contacts :-)
