Presbyopia is, unfortunately, an age-related refractive condition where the patient experiences a loss of focus for objects close by, as the lens inside the eye becomes less flexible with time, and needs reading glasses.

Presbyopia may occur in a person with good distance vision or with any of the other refractive errors (astigmatism, myopia and hyperopia). It is often incorrectly referred to as long- sightedness because some long- sighted patients also only require reading glasses.

Presbyopia Treatment

Through your optician, the treatment would be either glasses or sometimes contact lenses. We can offer a more permanent solution with lens surgery or laser eye surgery where more suitable for patients experiencing early presbyopia.

Every patient is unique, so we offer a detailed consultation with one of our Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons to determine suitability, answer all your questions and explain the vision correction treatment.
