Why Presbyopia Isn’t the Curse it Once Was

Your eyesight can stay younger, longer.

Around middle age, we all start to lose clarity in our near vision. Reading becomes a challenge, and we combat it by extending our arms out, forcing the rest of our body into uncomfortable positions to make up for our eyes’ shortcomings.

This unfortunate situation is caused by presbyopia, a condition that afflicts nearly all adults, beginning in their forties and gradually worsening into their sixties.

This loss of ability to focus on nearby objects is caused by the hardening of the eye’s lens. The lessening flexibility keeps the lens from accurately refracting light to the back wall of the eye, and results in a blurring of close-up vision.

Reading glasses and specialty contact lenses are often used to treat the effects of presbyopia, but there are other methods of dealing with the inevitable loss of near focus.


Ditch those reading glasses; there are better ways to treat presbyopia.

It used to be that there was no sure surgical method of treating presbyopia.

No more! Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a surgical procedure that permanently reverses presbyopia’s effects on vision. During a refractive lens exchange procedure, the eye’s natural crystalline lens is replaced with an artificial lens called a Symfony lens. This lens not only solves the lack of flexibility that causes presbyopia, but also eliminates the future development of cataracts.

Right now, RLE is the best option for people looking to reverse presbyopia’s effects on their vision. If you’re 40, 65, or beyond and experiencing the detrimental effects of presbyopia and want to reclaim your near vision, set up an appointment, and our doctors will determine the treatment that will give you back your sight.
