If you are in your forties or fifties, you may have experienced a decline in your near vision. A common result of this is having to hold things far away to see, like a smartphone to read a text message or books for reading. If you find yourself struggling with these symptoms, you could have a common condition called presbyopia, or dysfunctional lens syndrome. Click the button below to see if you are a candidate for the revolutionary procedure called a Custom Lens Replacement that will help reduce or potentially eliminate your dependency on reading glasses. This quick survey takes less than a minute to fill out.
What is Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome (i.e. Presbyopia)?
Presbyopia occurs when the natural lens of the eye loses flexibility, which typically occurs during middle age. This lens is responsible for focusing light on the retina and flexes to accommodate when near vision is needed. As we age, the natural lens loses its elasticity and becomes less flexible. When this happens, the lens is no longer able to accommodate for close range distance.
Presbyopia treatment usually begins with a pair of reading glasses. People with presbyopia generally reach for their reading glasses each time they need to read a text, look at a label or read their favorite book. However, this quickly becomes tiring and frustrating.
Have you noticed that as you age, you are beginning to struggle with your vision? Even if you have not yet developed cataracts, you may be having trouble focusing on objects up close such as the newspaper or a computer screen. Depending upon your particular lifestyle and current prescription, your surgeon may recommend a Custom Lens Replacement (also known as a Refractive Lens Exchange).
If you are experiencing presbyopia, and are interested in learning more about your vision options, contact us at Williamson Eye Center to schedule an appointment with us!
