Just for Presbyopes

PresbyopiaAs people reach their mid to late 40s, a condition called presbyopia can set in. Presbyopia is the inability to focus on objects near the eye. One usually notices that it is harder to read or use the computer. Wearing bifocals or reading glasses is a way to remedy this condition.

Presbyopia is a natural consequence of the aging process. There is no cure, though researchers are constantly looking for one. Even if a person has never had vision problems before, he or she can still develop presbyopia.

While symptoms can present suddenly, presbyopia usually occurs gradually over a long period of time. Symptoms include having to hold things at arm’s length to see them clearly, eye strain, fatigue and headaches from near work.

Progressive/No-Line Bifocals

PresbyopiaFor many presbyopes, bifocal lenses are a necessity. However, it can be difficult to adjust to the visible line that is found in bifocal lenses. Fortunately, there are no-line lenses, which are also called progressive lenses. No more lines! Just a gradual change in focusing power which allows you to comfortably focus on any distance. Just as in wearing bifocals, distant objects are viewed through the top portion of the lenses, and near objects are viewed through the bottom portion of the lenses.

Monovision Correction

For some of our emerging presbyopes we offer another option to glasses, monovision. This is a method of fitting your dominant eye for distance vision and your non-dominant eye for near vision. Contacts are available in disposable, extended wear, and even daily disposable lenses to fit your lifestyle. Most patients require 2-4 weeks to make the adjustment from binocular vision to monovision.
