Presbyopia FAQs

What Is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an extremely common eye condition, suffered by about one of every four people worldwide. It’s caused primarily by aging—as the lenses in your eyes harden and become less flexible over time, they are less able to change shape to focus on objects closer to you.

What are the Symptoms of Presbyopia?

As presbyopia develops, you’ll find it more difficult to focus on books, magazines or other objects close to you. You may feel strain or tension in your eyes or need to hold objects further away to see clearly.

How Is Presbyopia Diagnosed?

A basic eye exam that includes a refractive assessment (which looks at how your eyes take in light) will typically determine if you have presbyopia.

What Is the Treatment for Presbyopia?

In almost every instance, the best way to resolve presbyopia is with corrective lenses or contacts. You may opt for bi-focals or tri-focals, with different prescriptions for different distances. You can also get “multi-focals,” which don’t have the visible horizontal lines.
