Presbyopia

When you are getting older sooner or later everybody noticed it, that small print gets harder and harder to read. Reading glasses become an accessory you just can’t do without.

Everyone’s eyesight gets worse as they get older – regardless of whether or not you have had sight problems before then or if you have been short-sighted or long-sighted. It starts at around the age of 45 and first becomes noticeable with text in small print becoming out of focus even close up and can only be read using reading glasses.

How does presbyopia occur?

Presbyopia is caused by a continuous loss of elasticity in the eye lens with increasing age.

Modern lens procedures today enable the body’s own rigid eye lens to be replaced with an artificial lens and so can offer a life without reading glasses or varifocals even at over 45 years of age.

How can presbyopia be treated?

Presbyopia cannot be held back either by medication or by training the eye. To maintain visual focus at all distances, there are currently two options for corrections:

1. Reading glasses for close-up vision only, or alternatively varifocal lenses, if you already wore glasses before and were short-sighted or long-sighted.

2. Using multifocal lenses. Today are multifocal lenses a safe and precise method for correcting presbyopia. This involves replacing the body’s own rigid eye lens with an intelligent artificial lens. The procedure takes about 10 minutes per eye. This so-called refractive lens replacement is a very well-established procedure and has been routinely used for decades to treat cataracts. Multifocal lenses do not just correct presbyopia, but also any pre-existing short or long-sightedness as well as any astigmatism.
