OLD PROBLEM: Presbyopia is the most common eye condition in Australia and occurs as part of normal aging. It is not considered to be an eye disease and symptoms are usually noticeable by age 40–45.Cataract sufferers have been undergoing lens replacement surgery since the 1980s and it is regarded as one of the safest and most effective surgical procedures performed today.
What many people don’t know though is that a very similar procedure can help presbyopia sufferers to say goodbye to glasses dependence.
How do I know if I have presbyopia?Does this sound famililar –you hit your 40s and suddenly realised you could no longer see as clearly as you once did.
Fast forward another 10 years and your limbs don’t seem to be long enough to hold out that menu you used to read at arms length.
You are starting to depend on those glasses that you hate admitting you need to wear.
You resent that they are always downstairs, upstairs, in the car or in your purse.
You always had great vision and wonder how you ended up here. Very likely you have presbyopia.
Presbyopia is an age-related vision disorder that is considered a natural part of ageing.
It affects the sight of 1.3 million Australians and sets off a cycle of “glasses on glassess on glasses on” as your prescription gets worse, and your lenses get thicker and thicker!
With the latest advancements in cataract surgical techniques and through the learning of lens replacement treatments there is now a solution for helping those with presbyopia.
Using a lens that has a trifocal design to respond to different vision demands, surgeons can ultimately decrease or remove dependence on reading glasses for near and far visual fields.
These treatments have gained popularity here and overseas and have developed a reputation as safe, predictable and with results that work for many patients.
The day surgical procedure is quick, affordable and available.
