What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia Explained

Presbyopia is a vision condition that occurs naturally to most adults over age 40. It is not an eye disease, but rather the result of how the eye ages. Over time the eye lens becomes more rigid and loses its ability to flex and change shape. It becomes increasingly more difficult to perform certain activities without the aid of reading glasses, bifocals or trifocals.

Symptoms of Presbyopia

  • Difficulty working on projects up close, especially in dimly-lit areas
  • Need for magnifying reading glasses
  • Eyestrain or tired eyes after doing close-up tasks
  • Improved vision when you hold reading materials far away from your body

Presbyopia can be corrected
through a process similar to cataract surgery where the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with an Active Lifestyle Lens. Many adults find this procedure very rewarding, as it can help restore the vision of your youth.
