Do you suffer from Presbyopia?

Presbyopia (which literally means “aging eye”) is an age-related eye condition that makes it more difficult to see very close.

When you are young, the lens in your eye is soft and flexible. The lens of the eye changes its shape easily, allowing you to focus on objects both close and far away. After the age of 40, the lens becomes more rigid. Because the lens can’t change shape as easily as it once did, it is more difficult to read at close range. This normal condition is called presbyopia. Since nearly everyone develops presbyopia, if a person also has myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism, the conditions will combine. So if you’re having trouble reading things up close you’re likely experiencing presbyopia.

Again, Presbyopia is a naturally occurring eye condition that begins to affect most people in their 40’s.  Just because you have presbyopia doesn’t mean you need bifocals or reading glasses.  Multi-focal (simultaneous vision) contact lenses allow you to see at all distances- near, far and in-between. Bausch + Lomb ULTRA for Presbyopia contact lenses provide exceptional comfort and vision.  9 out of 10 patients agree that Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses are as comfortable at the end of the day as they are at the beginning of the day.

Contact our office for an exam to determine if Presbyopia exists and if you are a candidate for the Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses.
