Do I need reading glasses? Please help...?
Ok, my eyes feel really tired and burn when I read the newspaper or am on the computer for more than 20-30 minutes. Sometimes, I get a headache, too. But, I can see really well. Do I still need reading glasses even if I can read the print?

well maybe you need to get eye drops if that doesn`t work than that means you should get reading glasses. If you can`t read the print on the paper still than go get your eyes checked by a dermatologist and get reading glasses.

It's best if you have an eye exam. I didn't know I needed reading glasses, if you can still see things you think everything is fine. What has happened is that your eyes are straining to make you see things clearly, that's what gives you the headaches. If you don't get glasses it will only get worse.

On the computer you are proably sitting to close to the screen and when you read the newspaper the print is WAY to small. So i suggest that you ONLY use the classes for the newspaper. kay? Okay.

well i can see really well
and i need glasses and i can stay on the computer without getting a headace and i can watch tv too

mi mum has the same problem
she has to squint her eyes when she reads
and she gets the same thing as u
and the person sed that she has thin eye lids things so yerr
she couldnt get a operatin because of that

You may have poor light by your computer or when reading the newspaper. I don't think you need reading glasses, like you said you don't have a problem reading the letters. Could be the glare from the screen. I've heard people on the computer talking about a film they put over the screen, slightly tinted. Try working with the lighting around you. Good luck!

'Burning' is a common symptom of dry eye..so this is a possible cause of your problems. When you read or work on computer your blinking rate drops dramatically which can often lead to dry eye sensations.

Headaches aren't associated with dry eyes so, yes, its possible you may need glasses. Your eyes may be working too hard when reading (so making everything clear for you....but having to do alot of work to achieve this) and as a result they are tiring and giving you headaches.

Simple solution: go to your local optometrist and get an eye exam.
