Who experiences presbyopia?
  • Occurs naturally as we age, and it is not a disease or illness
  • Where near vision becomes blurred making it hard to focus
  • Require multifocal vision correction
  • Commonly mistaken for farsightedness
  • Presbyopia is due to the loss of flexibility in the lens, whereas farsightedness is a result of a misshapen cornea
Symptoms of presbyopia
  • Blurred vision on close objects that were once in focus due to the loss of flexibility in the lens
Causes of presbyopia
  • As you age, the crystalline lens in your eye hardens and loses elasticity, which used to be soft and flexible – readily changing shape to see images from different distances
  • With this loss of elasticity and flexibility your eyes can no longer adjust properly to focus on near objects
What to do
  • Presbyopia can be diagnosed by an eye care professional
  • Bifocal or varifocal spectacles – multifocal lenses addresses your:
    • Near vision
    • Intermediate vision
    • Distance vision
  • Multifocal vision correction is done in a number of ways:
    • Magnifiers
    • Reading glasses
    • Contact lenses recent technology allows people who are entering into presbyopia to continue wearing contact lenses, instead of having to switch to bifocals, or reading glasses
    • Surgery – Crystalens is a unique artificial lens implant that, unlike a standard Intraocular Lens, can treat presbyopia (loss of near and  intermediate vision), by recreating your eye’s natural lens, allowing you to enjoy a fuller, more natural range of vision
