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 West Texas Optometry, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

Dr Wong and her staff exceeded our expectations. It is very rare to actually see a doctor in person... any longer and not receive an exam through a computer doc in the box. Office personnel were extremely professional and Dr Wong was very informative. As long as we continue to receive personal service with an in office doctor, we will continue using WTO.

First time to experience Dr Wong and her staff. On a scale of 1-10, everybody gets a 20 esp Dr Wong.... I have been to Opthamologists and optometrists and Dr Wong is at the top of my list. She is so patient, knowledgeable, candid and so personable. Her staff is the same. Dr Wong truly has earned her high review ratings! And cannot thank the optician enough for taking the time to help get the best deal for my contacts. She was so very helpful and patient and knowledgeable. Again, Thank You, Dr Wong!

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.
