I had a recent eye checkup. There is no change to the prescription of varifocal lenses. Why do I need to remove glasses for reading? Would single lens solve the problem?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
If you were wearing glasses for near and now you do not need glasses for near, then that means you are getting index myopia due to changes in your natural lenses. That is an early sign of cataract changes that you can see without near glasses and it is called second vision. As you are 70 years old, there must be some early cataract changes. If you are fine with glasses for distant vision, then it is fine until your vision is further deteriorated.
