Are you holding things further out for them to be clear enough to read? Are your arms not long enough anymore? That is presbyopia! Sometime in our forty’s, we will find it is becoming difficult to see up close. Presbyopia happens naturally as we age because the lens in our eye becomes less pliable and is unable to focus at near. Common symptoms of presbyopia include having a hard time reading small print or having problems seeing objects that are close. This leads to headaches, eyestrain, and frustration! Luckily, your doctor can prescribe progressive lens and/or multifocal contact lenses to eliminate these symptoms and allow for clear and comfortable vision at all distances. If you would like to speak to an eye care professional to learn more about presbyopia, lens options, or need help booking an appointment, contact our office at (480) 806-2181.
