JUST FOR PRESBYOPES « optometryonhydepark.com

ARMS TOO SHORT?
just-forPAs people reach their mid to late 40s, a condition called presbyopia sets in. Presbyopia is the inability to focus on objects near the eye. One usually notices that it is harder to read or use the computer.   

Presbyopia is a natural consequence of the aging process. The crystalline lens inside your eye loses ts elasticity and  you are no longer able to flex the lens in order to focus at near.  There is  no way to reverse or slow down the process.   Even if someone has never had vision problems before, he or she can still develop presbyopia.  Although it may seem to occur suddenly, it actually occurs over a long period of time.  Early stages of presbyopia often cause eye strain, fatigue, and headaches from near work.

WHAT ARE OUR OPTIONS?
Presbyopia is treated through various eyewear options.  These options are really dependent on your lifestyle and work habits.  Your optometrist is best suited to help you as they understand the benefits of each product and after your examination and knowing how your eyes function and hearing your needs, they can prescribe the best option(s) for you.

COMPUTER GLASSES
To reduce eye strain and fatigue, the optometrist can prescribe specialized computer lenses. These lenses are perfect for computer users who spend a majority of their days working on computers. And since three out of four computer users will suffer from Computer Vision Syndrome, computer lenses are a great way to keep your eyesight healthy and comfortable.  Specific tints and coatings are often prescribed as well to the computer user to reduce eye strain.

READING GLASSES
One of the first areas of your life where presbyopia becomes noticeable is in your ability to read.  As the eyes work together as a team, and often there is small imbalances between the eyes, reading glasses for specific tasks are best prescribed to you by your optometrist.  

PROGRESSIVE LENSES
For many presbyopes, multifocal lenses are a necessity as we multi-task throughout the day.  As the name suggests there is a range of focusing power in the lenses which allow you to comfortably focus on distant objects through the top portion of the lenses, and near objects through the bottom portion of the lenses.

MULTIFOCAL CONTACT LENSES
In addition to glasses, you may be a great candidate for multifocal contact lenses.  You can have all of the benefits of multifocal lenses in the convenience of contact lenses.  Talk with your optometrist today about your contact lens options.

MONOVISION CONTACT LENSES
For some of our emerging presbyopes, monovision contact lenses can give the freedom of contact lenses and still help you with your near demands. This is a method of fitting your dominant eye for distance vision and your non-dominant eye for near vision.  Talk to your optometrist today about your contact lens options.
