Presbyopia is a widespread form of ocular aging that begins to noticeably affect our near vision between the ages of 40 and 50. As an unpreventable condition, the onset of presbyopia is an inevitable part of growing older that will affect everyone, even those who have always had perfect vision and including those who may already suffer from cataracts.

Diagnosing Presbyopia

Presbyopia refers to a loss of near vision that generally occurs as a result of the aging eye's crystalline lens becoming less flexible and therefore unable to make the fine adjustments needed to focus on things up close.

Common signs of the onset of presbyopia include:

  • A tendency to hold reading materials at a further distance for better clarity
  • Eyestrain, headaches or fatigue after performing close-up tasks
  • Blurred vision or difficulty when viewing letters at closer ranges

Because presbyopia is natural part of the aging process, typically commencing around age 40 and progressing until about age 65, it's important to recognize the signs so you can seek appropriate diagnosis and treatment from your eye doctor.

The best way to determine which treatment option is right for you is for our experienced eye doctors to evaluate your needs during your personal appointment. The presbyopia treatment you pursue will not only depend on your physical requirements but your personal preferences, so it's important to understand the benefits and limitations of all of your available options before making a decision.
