Although it is said that “life begins at 40,” many people still dread reaching the so-called prime of their lives. This is the time when undesirable physical changes start to appear. One of the most telling signs of being 40 is the beginning of eye problems like presbyopia or near-vision blurriness.
But do people really have to suffer poor vision as they age? Top actor Piolo Pascual does not think so.
Piolo, who recently turned 40, continues to charm audiences on the silver screen and television with his expressive eyes, which light up in romances, pierce through rivals in action-thrillers and brim with tears in dramas.
Piolo emphasizes the importance of taking care of one’s health and ensuring and protecting clear eyesight. For people who enter their 40s and start to experience near-vision blurriness, he recommends having the eyes checked regularly. He says that the key to keeping the eyes healthy midlife are prevention, protection and correction. He recommends Varilux® lenses for his fellow forty-somethings with presbyopia.
Varilux® progressive lenses are recognized worldwide as an optimal solution to achieving natural, sharper vision in any distance, with smooth transition in between. Using patented W.A.V.E 2.0 and Binocular Booster™ lens technologies, Varilux® lenses help those in the prime of their lives see effortlessly in any distance, and also help boost their active lifestyles.
Pascual says, “Turning 40 is one of the greatest milestones in life that we should embrace and appreciate. We need healthy vision to see and enjoy every moment in our life, which is why it’s important that we take care of our eyes. With healthy vision, we can live our lives to the fullest.”
