What causes presbyopia?

Presbyopia is most commonly caused by age and it often starts to impact the vision of people between the ages of 40-45. This is because, as we age the muscles in our eyes weaken, making it more difficult to focus and see up close.

How is presbyopia corrected?

Presbyopia can be corrected with over-the-counter readers, prescription reading glasses, contacts, LASIK or PRK eye surgery or lens replacement.

Can LASIK correct presbyopia?

Yes, creating monovision during the LASIK procedure allows patients to achieve improved vision at all distances — without being dependent on glasses, contacts or even readers.
