Presbyopia

What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is a condition in which the crystalline lens of your eye loses its flexibility, which makes it difficult for you to focus on close objects.

Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process of the eye. It is not a disease and it cannot be prevented.

Symptoms of Presbyopia

Some of the most common symptoms of presbyopia are:

  • blurred vision at normal reading distance
  • eye fatigue
  • eyestrain
  • headaches

How is Presbyopia Diagnosed?

If you or your eye doctor suspects you have presbyopia, an eye examination, including a Visual Acuity test, Refraction test, Muscle integrity test, Slit-lamp test, Retinal examination test may be needed.

Treatment options for Presbyopia

Treatments are aimed at alleviating the symptoms. Reading glasses, bifocals, trifocals or contact lenses may be prescribed.
