Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Reduced distant vision can be from various causes apart from glasses such as cataract, age related macular degeneration, glaucoma and many more.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

A detailed eye exam by an ophthalmologist will help to reach a definite diagnosis .

Dr. A.S. Desai :

An optician will unfortunately be of little help here.
