Presbyopia Surgery

Presbyopia is a term used to describe age-related changes to the natural lens within the eye. During early adulthood, this lens is required to view near objects. This is achieved by changing shape called “accommodation”. Over time and with environmental factors, the ability of the eye to change the lens’ shape is reduced leading to presbyopia. Early signs appear as inability to focus on small print especially under poor lighting conditions, needing to move objects further away to see clearly and the need for magnifying glasses.

As this condition is a natural aging process, everybody will experience this to a varying degree. Reading glasses can be implemented to assist with focusing near objects. Multifocal soft contact lenses may also assist. Rarely, clear lens extraction or cataract surgery can be performed to minimize dependence on correction for distance/intermediate and near tasks.
