As we head into our mid to late 40s we will all begin to notice that small print becomes more and more difficult to read up close. This is usually noticed when one starts to move menus, price tags and newspapers further away in order to read the fine print. This condition, called presbyopia, affects everyone and is a typical sign of aging eyes.

Reading Vision

The crystalline lens inside the eye changes its shape in response to the ciliary body. This change in shape occurs as a result of the lens’ inrinsic elasticity. When we are born, the lenses are extremely elastic and readily change their shape.

There is not a consensus on why presbyopia occurs. Most believe presbyopia develops as a result of the hardening of the crystaline lens of the eye.

There are many surgical and non-surgical ways to treat presbyopia, which include:

  • Bifocal reading glasses
  • Bifocal or progressive contact lenses
  • CK
  • Clear lens exchange
  • Monovision LASIK

Wow, what a huge difference a short 15 minutes makes! Having spent so much of my life helpless without my glasses and inconvenienced by an expensive contacts routine -- suddenly I could see, and with minimal down-time.
