What is Presbyopia?

Over time, the eye loses its ability to focus at near distances. This is called presbyopia and is a normal aging process. This occurs progressively over time between the ages of 40 and 65. Presbyopia develops because the eye's natural lens becomes less flexible.

Even people who have never had vision problems in the past can develop presbyopia.

Treatment for Presbyopia

  • Prescription reading glasses
  • High Tech Lenses (IOL) Implants, often combined with cataract surgery
  • Monovision with LASIK (correcting one eye for near vision and one eye for distance vision)
