Safe treatment for Presbyopia has not been established yet. Techniques using monovision where one eye is used for far vision and the other kept with a near focus can be explored on a patient to patient basis.
Do you find it hard to read menus in restaurants without putting on your reading glasses? Or how about the hassle of not being able to read your text messages quickly when you're out and about?
If you have always had good vision and now find yourself over 40 and needing reading glasses, or if you have been wearing glasses for distance vision and now find you are losing your close up vision, you may be developing presbyopia.
Presbyopia is simply an unavoidable condition where the eye's ability to focus on near objects diminishes as we get older, and effects everyone by the age of 45-50.
Recent developments have revolutionised what we can now offer patients who suffer from presbyopia and now need reading glasses.
