Presbyopia is a condition that occurs as you age. As a part of the natural process of aging, the lens in your eye loses its elasticity and is no longer able to focus on images up close; it cannot change shape as easily as it once did. Are you having trouble reading restaurant menus? Are your arms not long enough? Most people over the age of 40 and everyone over the age of 50 will become presbyopic and experience difficulty reading the fine print of the newspaper, or a phonebook. In the past, presbyopia was corrected with the use of reading glasses. Now some believe that monovision may be an option. Monovision is a procedure where the laser is used to correct one eye for distance, and the other for close-up vision.

If this interests you, feel free to talk to one of our Laser Vision Coordinators about the process. Non-surgical options for correcting presbyopia include, bifocals, progressive addition lenses (or PALs), reading glasses and multifocal contact lenses.
