What is Presbyopia?

The clinical term “Presbyopia” simply means you’re gradually losing your ability to see or focus on things up close.

Since presbyopia is an age-related condition, the close vision continues to deteriorate, so the only way to get a handle on it is to treat it.

Causes

It’s a natural deterioration that occurs due to age, the lens of the eye begins to lose elasticity causing presbyopia. Generally, patients begin to see a difference at around age 40 when their reading vision begins to suffer, and it continues to worsen.

If you begin holding your cell phone or book at an arm’s distance to see clearly, you’ll want to schedule a basic eye exam which will confirm or deny presbyopia.

Treatment Options

There are various treatment options to consider, once Dr. Alexandra has determined and confirmed that your vision error is Presbyopia; she will outline the various options available to you in order for you to make an informed decision about your eye health.

Reading glasses are one option that makes living with Presbyopia more convenient, but this tends to be quite an annoyance for many, and one of the many reasons patients choose surgery instead.

Does Lasik For Presbyopia Work?

Although the condition is common in patients age 40 and above, it can occur at any time, before or after the age of 40. Lasik vision correction for Presbyopia is a great option for those patients that wear reading glasses.  It will enhance their close up vision without the burden of wearing the reading glasses.

Since Presbyopia is a progressive problem that continues to deteriorate until your late 60’s, a Lasik vision correction may need to be repeated after a period of time.
