What is Presbyopia?
What you need to know about ageing and vision
Do you find yourself having to hold the menu further away to read it? Are you struggling to read messages on your mobile phone or the small print on grocery labels?
If you are, you’re not alone.
These are common first signs of presbyopia, the normal loss of near focusing ability that occurs with age. Unfortunately, we can’t escape this, and most of us will start to notice this change in our early to mid-forties. The good news is that we can correct presbyopia very simply with glasses or contact lenses in the prescription you need.
What causes presbyopia?
As we age, the lens in the eye gradually thickens and loses elasticity. As a result, light focuses behind the retina instead of directly on it, compromising our ability to focus on close objects.
What are the common symptoms?
- Small print appears blurred
- Having to hold reading material further than arm’s distance
- Tired or strained eyes when performing close tasks
Why see us?
You don’t need to put up with the inconvenience and strain of presbyopia. Our job is to get your near vision within arm’s length again, and this starts with a comprehensive eye examination. Once we have a full picture of your vision and eye health, we’ll prescribe a tailored solution that fits best with your daily life. It’s natural to feel a little apprehensive about wearing glasses or contact lenses for the first time. Our experienced team will support you through the process, so you see well and feel confident in your new eyewear!
Personalised eyecare is essential for maintaining optimal vision, detecting eye conditions early, and promoting overall well-being. By tailoring examinations, prescriptions, lenses, and lifestyle recommendations to each individual, we can provide the highest standard of care.
