what is presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related focus dysfunction that results in the gradual loss of near vision. It is not a disease – it is as natural as wrinkles and eventually affects everyone.? It can start as early as 35 but people typically become symptomatic from the age of 40 onwards, whether they are near sighted, far sighted or enjoyed perfect vision previously. It is estimated that over 1.8 billion people worldwide have some degree of presbyopia. The most common solution for presbyopia is the use of reading glasses or contact lenses.

Do I have presbyopia?


how can my presbyopia be treated

Exciting advances in ophthalmology now allow patients to choose corneal inlays to correct presbyopia. In contrast to other alternative treatments to reading glasses and contact lenses, such as monovision LASIK or more invasive intraocular lens replacement surgery, the Presbia Microlens technology can be an excellent option. Most importantly, it is designed to be easily removable and upgradable if, for instance, your presbyopia advances and a new prescription is needed. Learn more.
