What is presbyopia?

Presbyopia is a common eye condition that causes difficulty focusing on near objects. It typically begins around age 40 and worsens gradually over the next decade. The lens inside your eye is a flexible structure that changes shape to focus light onto the retina, the light-sensitive layer at the back of your eye. As you age, the lens becomes less flexible, making it harder to focus on near objects.

What are the symptoms of presbyopia?

Symptoms of presbyopia typically begin in your mid-40s and worsen over time. Common symptoms include:

Presbyopia can be diagnosed during a routine eye exam. A vision test will typically be performed if there are any concerns, as well as an examination of your eyes for other conditions.

How does presbyopia treatment work?

There is no cure for presbyopia, but there are several ways to correct it, including reading glasses, bifocals, trifocals, progressive-addition lenses, contacts, and surgery. Reading glasses are the simplest and most common way to correct presbyopia. They come in a variety of strengths and styles to suit your needs.

Bifocal or trifocal lenses can also be used as treatment. These eyeglasses have two or three different lens powers in one lens, allowing you to see clearly at both near and far distances. Progressive-addition lenses (PALs) gradually change power from top to bottom, permitting you to see clearly at all distances without any visible lines. Several contact lens options are available for people with presbyopia, including bifocal and multifocal lenses.

In some cases, surgery may be an option to correct presbyopia. However, surgery is usually only considered for people who do not want to wear glasses or contact lenses.
