Presbyopia: Treatments

The treatment of presbyopia consists mainly of wearing glasses, but other solutions are possible.

At first, your near vision has dropped but it is not catastrophic, you can still do without glasses in most situations. The doctor may prescribe half-moons to wear only for reading, if you do not have other eye disorders.

At first, they will stay on your bedside table, it's classic ...

These glasses do not allow to see far; beyond 30 cm, you have to look over your glasses or remove them.

Then, presbyopia worsening, your glasses will become more and more essential, it will become difficult to see the keys on your mobile phone, work on a computer screen, or read music scores.

Progressive lenses keep your glasses on your nose all the time; after a certain period of adaptation, you will not leave them. They are essential if you are in addition to being presbyopic, myopic, astigmatic or hyperopic. In general, glasses must be changed every 2 years, sometimes more often. When presbyopia increases, the nearsighted will be better to read closely ... without glasses.

Another treatment, another solution: lenses can also be prescribed for presbyopes, they are progressive lenses: the bottom of the lenses allows to see up close, the high by far. Some ophthalmologists prescribe sometimes, two different lenses: a lens on an eye to see up close, a lens on the other eye to see from afar.

Surgical operation may also be considered to treat presbyopia. There are various possible interventions, and their indication depends on possible other disorders associated or not with presbyopia (myopia, astigmatism, hyperopia). Laser interventions on the cornea, or replacement of the lens with a lens, are the most common interventions.
