Understanding and Treating Presbyopia

What is Presbyopia?

Commonly referred to as "over 40 eyes," presbyopia is a natural part of aging, often starting in the forties or early fifties. It occurs as the eye's lens becomes less flexible, making it challenging to focus on close objects, necessitating reading glasses for activities like reading.

Symptoms to Watch For

The hallmark of presbyopia is blurry vision at close range, leading to eye strain and fatigue during tasks like reading. Some may also experience temporary blur when shifting focus from near to distant objects.

Treatment Options for Clearer Vision

Presbyopia can be managed with various solutions, from simple reading glasses to advanced surgical procedures:

Reading or Bifocal Glasses: Traditional, straightforward options for near vision correction.

Bifocal and Mono vision Contacts: Bifocal contacts offer different magnifications for near and distance vision in one lens, while monovision contacts correct one eye for near and the other for distance vision.

Monovision or Blended LASIK: A precise, WaveFront-guided procedure that corrects one eye for distance and the other for near vision, offering a balanced approach to presbyopia correction.
