What is presbyopia?

La Presbyopia is the loss of flexibility of the lens that prevents you from changing your shape to observe objects clearly, a condition that occurs from the age of 45 and progressively due to aging.

Many people believe they have presbyopia because they have difficulty focusing or reading. However, these symptoms are associated with many ophthalmological conditions, which suggests a exhaustive review by an ophthalmologist to obtain a correct diagnosis.

La presbyopia is diagnosed performing a complete eye exam. Once the tired sight is detected, the person must go annually to the ophthalmologist to rule out other conditions associated with eyestrain such as glaucoma o the cataracts.

To recognize when it comes to tired eyesight and not other conditions, it is worth knowing all the symptoms it produces, such as:

  • Difficulty seeing nearby objects That is increasing over time.
  • Need to move objects away to be able to see them correctly.
  • Use of a much stronger light to be able to read or perform any other activity.
  • Difficulty focusing on objects That worsens at the end of the day.
  • The view gets cloudy in spaces with low brightness.
  • Visual fatigue.
  • Headache.
  • La lack of light becomes a constant discomfort.

Many people who begin to suffer tired eyes have other preexisting ophthalmic conditions They can make vision worse. Often, eyestrain occurs earlier in people with refractive problems like la farsightedness. Likewise, it often affects myopic patients as well as those who have never presented vision problems.

Once a specialist determines that the symptoms of presbyopia indeed they correspond to the presence of presbyopia, it is time to evaluate the possible alternatives to improve this condition.

Fortunately: presbyopia has a solution! Given the impossibility of seeing correctly, it is necessary to find an alternative that allows the patient to recover their quality of life. While tired eyesight has no cure, there are some treatments for presbyopia that can help the person recover their visual acuity, such as Presbyopia treatments with glasses or contact lenses or presbyopia surgery.

Presbyopia operation with intraocular lens

As we mentioned earlier, the cause of eyestrain is the loss of elasticity of the lens over the years. One of the most effective methods to To correct this problem is to remove the lens surgically and place, instead, a multifocal intraocular lens.

This lens will work as an artificial lens and depending on the type of multifocal intraocular lens we will offer different focus planes. The most common are the lenses they offer three vision planes: near, medium y far. The brain, automatically, when focusing on an object will choose the necessary plane of vision. With the presbyopia operation other vision problems such as myopia, the astigmatism or the farsightedness and also, by replacing the lens we will save the cataract operation.
