Presbyopia is an age-related condition where the eye progressively loses its ability to see up-close. Presbyopia occurs in everyone somewhere around age 45 and is caused by a progressive hardening of the lens inside the eye. That is why, around age 40, people start having to hold their reading material farther and farther away to see it. Presbyopia is not a disease. It is a normal age-related change.
Presbyopia can be treated with glasses or surgery. In some people, LASIK surgery is used to create “monovision”. With monovision, one eye is set for clarity in the distance and the other eye for clarity up-close. Another surgery to treat presbyopia is called “PHASER” –Phaco Assisted Surgical Extraction & Replacement. PHASER surgery is very similar to cataract surgery.
