Presbyopia is a condition associated with the ageing of the eye which makes it harder to focus clearly on close objects. Flexibility of the natural lens diminishes with age, and by their mid-forties, even people who have never needed spectacles start to need reading glasses.
If you already wear glasses for seeing at a distance, and are now experiencing the symptoms of presbyopia, varifocal lenses may be the solution, as they combine two prescriptions in one lens.
Advances in contact lens technology also mean that presbyopia can be easily corrected with multifocal lenses, which enable you to see clearly at all distances.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned, please make an appointment with the optical expert at your nearest Vision Express store.
