Eyes Over 40

PresbyopiaAs people reach their mid 40s, a condition called presbyopia can set in. Presbyopia is the inability to focus on objects near the eye.  An easy way to think about it is to realize that Mother Nature simply turns down our “autofocus” mechanism. One usually notices that it is harder to read or use the computer. Wearing bifocals, progressive lenses, or reading glasses is a common way to remedy this condition.

Presbyopia is a natural consequence of the aging process. There is no cure, though researchers are constantly looking for one. Even if a person has never had vision problems before, he or she can still develop presbyopia. While symptoms can present suddenly, presbyopia usually occurs over a long period of time.

Symptoms include having to hold things at arm’s length to see them clearly, eye strain, fatigue and headaches from near work.

Computer Glasses

To reduce eye strain and fatigue, we carry specialized computer lenses. These lenses are perfect for computer users who spend a majority of their days working on computers. And since three out of four computer users will suffer from Computer Vision Syndrome, computer lenses are a great way to keep your eyesight healthy.

Reading Glasses

One of the first areas of your life where presbyopia becomes prominent is in your ability to read. There are a variety of styles available, with sleek designs that allow you to carry them anywhere.

No-Line Bifocals

For many presbyopes, bifocal lenses are a necessity. But it can be difficult to adjust to the harsh line that is found in bifocal lenses. Fortunately, there are no-line lenses, which are also called progressive lenses. No more lines! Just a gradual change in focusing power which allows you to comfortably focus on any distance. Just as in wearing bifocals, distant objects are viewed through the top portion of the lenses, and near objects are viewed through the bottom portion of the lenses.

Bifocal Contacts

If you need bifocals but cannot stand wearing glasses, you may want to trybifocal contact lenses. Now you can have all of the benefits of progressive eyeglasses in the convenience of contact lenses. Talk with your doctor about bifocal contacts today.
