What is presbyopia?
As time goes by, our eyes lose the ability to focus on images up close.
We have to move an object, such as a book or newspaper, farther and farther in order to bring it into focus. This condition is called Presbyopia.
When Presbyopia progresses to the point where our arms are not long enough, we need reading glasses or bifocals.
Everyone will experience presbyopia, whether they have started with corrective lenses or not.
Presbyopia is simply an aging process of the internal lens of the eye and typically begins around the age of 40 to 45.
Patients in their forties or older who are experiencing difficulty with their reading vision, are now taking a more serious look at refractive surgery, which has high success rates and accuracy with good long-term results, therefore decreasing the necessity for both near and distance glasses.
