Vision Conditions

Presbyopia

PresbyopiaPresbyopia is a vision condition in which the crystalline lens of your eye loses its flexibility, making it difficult for you to focus on close objects. Usually noticeable in the early to mid-40s, presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process; it is not a disease, and it cannot be prevented.

Some signs of presbyopia include the tendency to hold reading materials at arm's length, blurred vision at normal reading distance and eye fatigue along with headaches when doing close work. To help you compensate for presbyopia — especially when complicated by conditions such nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism — we can prescribe reading glasses, bifocals, trifocals or contact lenses. We will work with you to determine the specific lenses that will allow you to see clearly and comfortably.
