As the body ages, many parts begin to change, functioning with less precision than they previously enjoyed. The eye is no exception. Aging eyes and vision, known medically as presbyopia, is largely due to a loss of elasticity in the ocular tissue. For people over the age of 45 this is a natural, if distressing condition. You may be suffering from presbyopia if you have difficulty focusing on nearby objects, need more light to focus vision, or experience blurred vision or occasional headaches.
Routine eye exams screen for presbyopia. Our clinic can assist patients with choosing prescription eyeglasses and contacts, and can even recommend a competent eye surgeon to conduct Lasik surgery to restore the eye to its youthful health.
