Reading Vision Correction

What is Presbyopia?

The vision condition of presbyopia happens to almost everyone at some point in their lives. While you may not know the term presbyopia, you may know the main symptom…the need for reading glasses.

Reason for Presbyopia

As we age, the natural lens of the eye becomes less flexible. The eye muscles can no longer flex the lens enough to accommodate for close-up vision. This condition typically begins after age 40 and becomes gradually worse.

Common Symptoms of Presbyopia

  • Difficulty reading, especially in low light conditions
  • Eyestrain after reading for extended periods
  • Headaches when doing close-up work
  • Blurry near vision
  • Need to hold reading materials far away to see them clearly

Treatment Options for Presbyopia

Many people view presbyopia as a sign of getting older, and they dread wearing reading glasses in public. If you are troubled by your inability to read menus, books and more, there are treatment options.

  • Monovision Vision Correction
  • Lens replacement surgery
  • Bifocal lenses
  • Monovision contact lenses, where one contact is set for distance vision and the other contact is set for close-up vision

Monovision Vision Correction

The Eye Center of Northern Colorado offers a surgical technique called monovision, where one eye is corrected for vision distance and the other eye is corrected for up-close vision. This correction is performed utilizing our LASIK surgery platform and may reduce the need for reading glasses.
