What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related vision condition that causes near objects to appear blurry. It typically starts in a person’s 40’s, when the lens of the eye begins to stiffen and lose flexibility. This makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects.

Presbyopia can significantly impact your quality of life. Regular daily activities like reading books, instruction manuals and food labels, scrolling through your phone, threading a needle and other close-up tasks can become daunting.

The good news is, with the help of A1A Family EyeCare, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

I’m so appreciative for being able to be seen here. Firstly, of the women at the front desk and th... e MAs are so sweet and they’re extremely well organized. They even called me before to confirm details so that my check in process was smooth. Dr. Joly is a really skilled physician with a great bedside manner, and she gave me a very thorough exam. She was also really empathetic and took the time to explain things and make sure I knew what to do for my eye. They even squeezed me in for a close follow up even though I know they’re extremely booked. I’m so grateful for their help!

This place is great! I know I’m not the easiest to please when it comes to glasses and contacts bu... t every time I go, everyone there is patient and kind. The front staff took the time to figure out and check my insurance when I had no information with me and no idea where it was through. They were able find it and save me hundreds of dollars. The tech who took me in for the prelim testing was kind and funny and patient with my eye “issues” (I hate things close to my eyes) and was able to successfully perform all duties without me hyperventilating. lol Dr mattox was very nice and took the time to talk about my past script and my new script and was able to answer all my questions regarding contacts . She was the first to find some where I could actually see out of instead of blaming my condition. I didn’t purchase glasses this last visit simply because my prescription didn’t change enough to warrant the cost. I’ve bought glasses from them before (during COVID) and ended up not liking how they looked once the mask was off and they were nice enough to let me swap them out. A complete redo without a hassle. I Highly recommend the office.

Presbyopia Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What is presbyopia treatment?

Presbyopia treatment corrects age-related farsightedness to enable you to see close-up objects, such as books and electronic screens more clearly. Treatments include:

  • Eyeglasses
  • Contact lenses
  • Laser surgery
  • Lens implants
Can presbyopia be cured?

Currently, there is no cure. The good news is that our optometrists can recommend a variety of treatment options to help you see your best, from near to far.

How do I know if I have presbyopia?

If you’re over 40 and struggle with any of the following, you may have presbyopia.

  • Holding a book or a screen at arm’s length to see it more clearly
  • Needing larger print or font size to read
  • Blurry vision while reading
  • Difficulty reading in dim light
  • Eye strain and headaches when focusing on near objects

If you have one or more of these signs, schedule an eye exam and ask us about glasses, contact lenses, or other presbyopia treatment options.

Are bifocals right for me?

If it’s hard for you to read and to see things at a distance, bifocals may be your perfect solution. With bifocals, you can get two prescriptions in one. One corrects farsightedness and the other corrects nearsightedness. We offer several different types of bifocal lenses to suit your personal preference.
