Presbyopia treatment is a part of ophthalmology that deals with the effects and treatment of presbyopia. The patients who have presbyopia experience a weakened ability to focus on near objects. This condition can be confused with nearsightedness or myopia as well. Presbyopia causes a loss of elasticity in the eye lens and alters the lens’ curvature.
Some of the symptoms of presbyopia involve:
● Problems focusing on fine writing or small objects
● Difficulty seeing in dim light
● Patients often have headaches while reading
Usually, these symptoms are mostly experienced when the patient is around 40 or 50 years old. If presbyopia treatment is not performed, with aging the ability to focus the near objects is declined gradually. Also, after the age of 40, even the patients without previous eyesight issues might develop presbyopia. The patients with myopia would notice more decline in their ability to focus, even while wearing glasses or contact lenses.
The doctors can diagnose presbyopia with an eye examination. The doctor would be examining the patient's refractive power, the retina, the patient's visual acuity or sharpness of vision, and the condition of the patient's eye muscles.
Presbyopia is a very common condition which affects over a billion people around the world. Therefore, there is a need for a safe and reliable presbyopia treatment for many people.
For the patients who are over 40 and need glasses or contact lenses for reading, and still experience problems in focusing on smaller objects or texts, presbyopia treatment is advised.
