When I was younger, I never wore glasses. I’ve always had fantastic vision.
But something happened once I turned 42 years old.
Reading and seeing words on a page were becoming more difficult. I noticed that I needed to hold the printed page at a distance. I would take the paper and hold it in my hand, and then extend my arm as far as I could. This for some reason helped me see better.
Sarah, my wife, who has worn glasses her entire life recommended seeing an optometrist.
Once I saw the optometrist, they said I had a slight eye deficiency and would now need readers.
I keep a set of readers at work and one at home.
I never carry them with me.
So I have a tough time reading something outside of those 2 places.
One of the places that I struggle the most with, is reading menus at restaurants. The lighting is very poor and the print on the menus and receipts is very small. Many times I’ll turn to my son to read the numbers of the receipt to me.
Just last week Sarah taught me a little trick that I’d like to share with all of you.
Then she will point the cell phone at the receipt or anything that she is trying to read. She will then zoom in the photo to enlarge the image or words on the receipt, like a magnifier.
Brilliant!! Absolutely brilliant!
I now use my phone to help me read all the time.
Sharing is Caring!
