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 Memorial Eye Center - Heights Blvd, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

Amazing experience from booking my appointment with an ease and being able to communicate my needs t... o reschedule my appointment was also a breeze. The staffs here are super accommodating and helpful in answering all of my questions as I had a lapse of time in getting my eye exam. Dr. Dixie Yee was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in helping me getting my contact lens exam and also my glasses exam. Choosing the frames and fitting my glasses was also a breeze with the front of office staffs as well. Thank you all for an amazing experience!

Love my experience with this place. My appointment was a blessing ,I had a previous eyecare company ... that I dealt with and there is no comparison. Everyone was nice and professional. They actually had an ophthalmologist on site to help me . Walter helped me with all that I needed and was a very good person. He let me try on several pairs to see what I liked and what I was comfortable with . He even straightened the glasses I already had to keep them from falling . Love this place !

I’ve been a long time patient of this location, the new doctor is fantastic. She’s very attentiv... e, knowledgeable, and has great bedside manner. She caught a chronic problem that the previous doctor never even mentioned to me and after my appointment she casually asked what my job was and after I told her she pulled me back into the exam room to give me more specific information about the risk of high impact job activities that could affect my eye health. She really cares about the health of your eyes.

I highly recommend this office for all eye concerns. The entire staff are very helpful and friendly.... I’ve been to many offices over the years. I will continue to be a patient here. It’s a different feeling. They give you the “warm and Fuzzy” family like feeling. I think the staff members are truly friends. I can tell there is a team like atmosphere here.

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.
