What Is Presbyopia?
Presbyopia is when your eyes gradually lose their ability to focus on nearby objects. This condition can be brought on by poor health, but more often than not, it’s really more of a natural—albeit annoying—part of aging. It usually begins around one’s mid-40s and continues to worsen until about age 65.
Presbyopia occurs when the lens of your eye, which the cornea uses to focus the light it receives from objects, begins to harden. The resulting inflexibility makes it more difficult for the lens to focus on close-up images, which means they appear out of focus.
Blurred vision at normal distances.
Eyestrain and/or headaches after doing activities such as reading or any work that requires a close-up distance.
Holding objects or materials farther away to make them clearer or more distinct.
There is no cure for presbyopia, but there are palliative treatments such as:
Contact lenses, including multifocals.
An FDA-approved implant that a doctor will surgically place in one eye.
Or, if you’re looking for a high-quality pair of corrective lenses, stop by the McDonald Optical eyeglasses store—also located in Iowa City—and get the gold standard eyeglass service you deserve.
