Presbyopia

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a universal vision disorder that occurs when people age resulting in the inability to focus on close objects. Generally, after the age of 40, you will experience blurred near vision when reading or working at the computer. You will find that you have to hold books and magazines further in order to focus properly. You may even experience headaches or eye strain.

Treatment

Eyeglasses are the simplest and safest means of correcting presbyopia. You may find using bifocal or progressive addition lenses to be very helpful to enable yourself to focus up close. Our Optical Shop has a complete range of lenses that will enable you to read and see up close again.  Multifocal contact lenses are also an excellent option for individuals who would like to avoid reading glasses.
