Presbyopia Correction

Font Size

Presbyopia is caused by a loss of elasticity in the eye’s crystalline lens.

Presbyopia typically occurs in people over the age of 40, and is a condition which causes you to see objects at a near distance less clearly. Presbyopia often necessitates the use of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses, and even bifocals or trifocals as the condition progresses. The good news is, our eye surgeons at New Eyes offer a range of treatments to reduce the effects of presbyopia so that you can more clearly see up-close objects without heavy reliance on corrective eyewear. And a very simple eye examination can diagnose presbyopia and help determine your treatment options.

Symptoms of Presbyopia

Presbyopia can be present for years before symptoms start to become apparent. These symptoms can include:

Causes of Presbyopia

Presbyopia is caused by a loss of elasticity in the eye’s crystalline lens. It is this lens that allows clear focus on objects viewed at a close range, and its flexibility is important because it permits the lens to adjust focus between near and far distances. The natural process of aging is the most likely cause for the decreased elasticity in the lens. It is a very common condition in patients over 40.

Presbyopia Treatment Options

Fortunately, there are a number of advanced treatment options that can give you clearer up-close vision and reduce the symptoms of presbyopia.

Lifestyle Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)

Implantable contact lenses available from New Eyes, such as ReSTOR®, Crystallens®, and TECNIS® Multifocal can significantly reduce blurriness associated with presbyopia. Some of our IOL options are also very effective in treating presbyopia and restoring vision after cataract surgery.
