I can't read anything close, is this due to lack of Vitamin A or age?

Difficult to read anything up close since turning 50. Will Vitamin A fix it?

    It's age. Your lenses get stiffer as you age making it hard to focus on things close up. 100% normal. Just get reading glasses.

    The correct word for your vision problem is actually presbyopia, not far sighted. It is an expected consequence of being 50. No amount of vitamin A will fix it.

    A pair of reading glasses would probably fix it.

    It is age. When one gets past 40 they usually start getting farsighted. I suggest getting a pair of reading glasses to help you get past this.

      They DON"T get farsighted , they get presbyopic. There is a difference.
