Presbyopia

 

Do you often hold your reading materials at an arm's length so you are able to see what you are reading more clearly? If so, this can be a sign of presbyopia. Characterized as blurred vision that occurs in the near sight, presbyopia commonly strikes in middle age. Most often, sufferers will notice difficulty with close tasks such as sewing, reading or working on a computer.

 

Unlike other vision problems that are caused by the shape of the eye, disease or trauma, presbyopia is a natural part of aging. Thought to stem from rigidity in the lens of the eye, presbyopia can affect you even if you have a history of perfect vision.

Fortunately, there are eyeglasses and contact lenses made especially for individuals who suffer from this problem. Progressive addition lenses, or bifocals, are most commonly prescribed to correct presbyopia. Reading glasses may also help, as will multifocal contact lenses. Some people prefer to utilize contact lenses that are known as monovision, in which one lens is prescribed for distance and the other for near vision. Surgery can also be used to treat this condition.

If you are finding it difficult to read at a close distance, contact us to schedule an eye exam and find the right corrective solution for you.
