Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process. It is due to the hardening of the lens of the eye causing the eye to focus light behind rather than on the retina when looking at close objects.
The symptoms of presbyopia are:-
- A tendency to hold reading material away to make the letters clearer
- Blurred vision
- Eyestrain or headaches after reading to after close-up computer work.
The Causes of presbyopia are:-
The causes of presbyopia are the cornea and the lens. The lens and the cornea are somewhat flexible and they can change the shape with the help of circular muscles that surrounds it. Presbyopia is caused by a hardening of the lens of the eye, which occurs with aging. When the lens becomes less flexible, it can no longer change the shape to focus on close-up images. After the result, these images appear out of focus.
Treatment of presbyopia
People with Presbyopia can also choose a multifactual contact lens, which is available in gas permeable or soft lens materials.
Glasses with progressive lenses are the most popular remedies for Presbyopia. This line-free multiplex lens clearly rests near the vision and provides excellent visibility at all spots.
