What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related vision condition that causes near objects to appear blurry. It typically starts in a person’s 40’s, when the lens of the eye begins to stiffen and lose flexibility. This makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects.

Presbyopia can significantly impact your quality of life. Regular daily activities like reading books, instruction manuals and food labels, scrolling through your phone, threading a needle and other close-up tasks can become daunting.

The good news is, with the help of Penn Eye Care, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

Dr. Penn is honestly the best there is in his field. Trust me my eyes are a mess and he always gets ... my prescriptions correct. When he retires I am going to need him to see me at his house. It gives me anxiety just thinking about him retiring. 🙂

THIS. PLACE. IS. AMAZING. I had a bad experience with America’s Best Eye Care after three times I ... told them the prescription is off, slow shipping of glasses, contacts never showed up. So we cancelled that order and went with my bfs parents suggestion. At Penn Eye Care I was able to file out my form online, seen by the first eye assistant within 8mins (and we were early so we got in I believe even before my appointment time) I got actual pictures of my eyes (only an extra $40 and it shows if you even have diabetes or not! Technology!!) the gal, I didn’t catch her name but she was so sweet. She and no one else there shamed me for how old my contacts were, unlike how ABEC did… and Dr. Penn was amazing. They all could see I was struggling w seeing and confirmed AB gave me completely wrong prescriptions. I got DKNY glasses and eye care (w no insurance) even cheaper than AB and their non designer glasses and long wait time) my glasses came in the mail in, I kid you not, 5 days. And that includes weekend days. Going to pick up contacts and a pair of sunglasses (which if you get before the year end is 50% off even if you don’t buy it all at the same time) Richard Le helped us out with everything and was suuuper incredible. Hands down will never go anywhere else. I’m so happy to be able to see again and I won’t be missing those headaches lol. THANKS AGAIN!!! I’ll post a review on Facebook sometime after the contacts get ordered.

Presbyopia Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What is presbyopia treatment?

Presbyopia treatment corrects age-related farsightedness to enable you to see close-up objects, such as books and electronic screens more clearly. Treatments include:

  • Eyeglasses
  • Contact lenses
  • Laser surgery
  • Lens implants
Can presbyopia be cured?

Currently, there is no cure. The good news is that our optometrists can recommend a variety of treatment options to help you see your best, from near to far.

How do I know if I have presbyopia?

If you’re over 40 and struggle with any of the following, you may have presbyopia.

  • Holding a book or a screen at arm’s length to see it more clearly
  • Needing larger print or font size to read
  • Blurry vision while reading
  • Difficulty reading in dim light
  • Eye strain and headaches when focusing on near objects

If you have one or more of these signs, schedule an eye exam and ask us about glasses, contact lenses, or other presbyopia treatment options.

Are bifocals right for me?

If it’s hard for you to read and to see things at a distance, bifocals may be your perfect solution. With bifocals, you can get two prescriptions in one. One corrects farsightedness and the other corrects nearsightedness. We offer several different types of bifocal lenses to suit your personal preference.
