What is Presbyopia?
Presbyopia is a natural change in our eyes’ ability to focus. It occurs when the soft crystalline lens of the eye starts to harden. This loss of flexibility affects the lens’ ability to focus light in the eye, causing nearby objects to look blurry.
Who Does Presbyopia Affect?
Presbyopia happens to everyone starting in about our 40s or 50s — even in patients who have had laser vision correction.
Management and Treatment
Presbyopia can be managed non-surgically in a similar way to astigmatism, myopia (nearsightedness), and hyperopia (farsightedness) by prescribing glasses or contact lenses.
We understand that glasses and contacts are often a hassle for many of our patients. Therefore, a permanent treatment option for presbyopia includes performing laser vision correction surgery or lens replacement surgery.
Not all surgical procedures are covered by insurance so we are proud to offer financing for all of our surgical vision correction procedures.
