In brief: Vision after 50

Loss of reading vision occurs in most people between 40 and 50 and is due to presbyopia.
Reading glasses are in order. Belladonna used commonly for stomach problems exaggerates this phemenon. If your vision is blurry in the daistance as well you are probably far sighted and need distance glasses as well. Belladonna definitely makes this worse.

In brief: Belladona

Belladona can actually cause your eyes to dilate which will make reading or upclose vision worse.
Also being over 45 will make reading vision worse, and you probably need reading glasses. See your ophthalmologist for new glasses and you may want to speak to your pcp about finding something ellse other than belladonna for your stomach pain.
