Presbyopia Symptoms and Options

Arms not long enough to read the newspaper? 

If you are over 40 years of age and find yourself having to hold your reading material further and further away from you, it’s likely time for progressive/multifocal lenses.

Presbyopia is a common eye condition that is usually experienced in the form of blurred near vision when reading, sewing or working at the computer. This may result in the development of headaches, eye strain or tired eyes when performing near work.

Presbyopia is caused by age-related factors which cause a loss of flexibility of the natural lens of the eye and so a vision correction becomes necessary.

If you are experiencing such symptoms and discomfort, an eye exam is recommended. This condition is easily corrected with eyeglasses of increasing strength as a person ages. Corrective lens options include reading glasses, bifocals or progressive addition lenses. Talk to your Eye Care Professional to discuss the best option for your visual and lifestyle needs.
