Presbyopia

 

Do you often hold your reading materials at an arm's length so you are able to see what you are reading more clearly? If so, this can be a sign of presbyopia. Characterized as blurred vision that occurs in the near sight, presbyopia commonly strikes in middle age. Most often, sufferers will notice difficulty with close tasks such as sewing, reading or working on a computer.

 

Unlike other vision problems that are caused by the shape of the eye, disease or trauma, presbyopia is a natural part of aging. Thought to stem from rigidity in the lens of the eye, presbyopia can affect you even if you have a history of perfect vision.

Fortunately, there are eyeglasses and contact lenses made especially for individuals who suffer from this problem. Progressive addition lenses, or bifocals, are most commonly prescribed to correct presbyopia. Reading glasses may also help, as will multifocal contact lenses. Some people prefer to utilize contact lenses (see page bifocal glasses or contact lenses.

If you are finding it difficult to read at a close distance, contact Dr. Dunn to schedule an eye exam and find the right option that would suite you and your life style.
