Presbyopia is a natural part of aging that affects the ability to see close-up objects clearly. It is caused by the gradual loss of flexibility in the lens of the eye, which makes it harder to focus on nearby objects.
Symptoms of presbyopia include difficulty reading small print, holding reading materials at arm’s length, and experiencing eye strain or headaches when performing close-up tasks.
Presbyopia typically begins to develop around age 40 and affects nearly everyone by the age of 55. It is not caused by any specific disease or condition and cannot be prevented.
Fortunately, there are several treatment options available for presbyopia.
One common solution is Progressive Lenses, which gradually change from distance to reading prescriptions comfortably. At Realeyes we work alongside Seiko Vision Uk to bring you the best lenses on the market.
Another solution is to use contact lenses that correct for presbyopia. Multifocal contact lenses are designed to correct for both distance and near vision, while monovision contact lenses correct for one eye’s distance vision and the other eye’s near vision.
In severe cases surgery may be an option but you can discuss with with your optometrist.
In any case, it is essential to consult an optometrist for an advanced eye exam to determine the best treatment options for you.
Presbyopia is a natural part of aging that affects the ability to see close-up objects clearly. It can be treated with different options such as glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery. An advanced eye exam with an eye doctor is necessary to determine the best treatment for each individual.
