Presbyopia is a type of farsightedness that makes it difficult for people as they age to see things close up. It usually begins about age 40 and progressively worsens until you reach your late 60s. The aging lens becomes less flexible and loses its ability to focus on objects that are nearby.
When you find yourself adjusting your arm length as you try to read a menu, you can bet that presbyopia is beginning to occur. There is a silver lining… Dr. Turk and his staff can adjust your eyeglass or contact prescription to keep you seeing at your best at every age.
For those that would prefer an alternative to glasses or contacts, ask about vuity eyedrops and whether they are a good option for you.
