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 Savage Eye Clinic, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

Presbyopia Treatment Options

  • Eyeglasses

    • Prescription reading glasses
    • Bifocals: for distance and near vision correction
    • Progressive multifocals: see objects at a near, intermediate or far distance
  • Contact lenses

    • Bifocal contact lenses: different sections for reading and distance prescriptions
    • Monovision contact lenses: distance prescription in one eye and reading prescription in the other eye
  • Laser surgery

    Changes the shape of the cornea to correct vision. Some examples include:

    • LASIK
    • LASEK
    • Photorefractive keratectomy
  • Lens implant

    An eye surgeon removes your natural lens and replaces it with an intraocular lens. This new lens is flexible and can restore your ability to focus on near objects.

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.

I had been seeing spots/flashing lights at the corner of my eye for a couple days. I learned this co... uld be an emergency, needing immediate retinal surgery to repair a tear! I messaged the office late at night. First thing the next morning, they called and I came in. The nurse who did the initial testing was terrific and explained and addressed my concern. Dr. Asman came right in, listened to my concern and did a full exam. I told her I was dealing with some *severe* anxiety and couldn’t imagine lying awake and still for up to 2 hours having my eye repaired! Luckily, it wasn’t a tear, I have some spots that cause the same symptom of the flashing lights. (If you or someone you know is having that happen, get to an eye doc immediately!) Had I in fact had the retinal tear, she told me she has a doc who would get me in within 30 minutes to do the surgery! Every person in that office from reception, nurse, doc was as kind, patient and gracious as can be. I don’t know to recommend someone more highly.

The staff was excellent in helping me calm down after I was late to get to the appointment because I... was in unfamiliar territory in Savage! Dr King was very helpful in telling me what I should do & how long this would last.

The friendly service starts when you walk in the door to the doctor and the staff that helps you pic... k out your glasses. They take their time to make sure the glasses work for you on your face and determine what your insurance will cover as well as down to what you want on your lenses. My son goes here as well and now my husband will be going there.

Dr Stout is very knowledgeably. Both he and the staff are also personable. He and the staff were a... ble to answer every question I had concerning my condition. I have been pleasantly surprised that there is an eye clinic so near me that can handle all of my needs.

Where to begin... Let's start with a "friendly reminder of my appointment" call. That was pretty coo... l. Then I get there and I must say, WOW, the staff is amazing. I can not find the words to state how awesome my visit was. Had a blast laughing with the young lady at the desk. Let's throw in about another 1000 cool points because she rides a motorcycle. The doctor was very knowledgeable, considerate, and helpful, I feel these accolades don't give enough justice. And the icing on the cake, to round out the bases coming in to home plate, the young woman who helped with my lense and frame selection, OMG, amazing. Super knowledgeable, great delivery, honest, and tries her best to get you savings. Overall, all in all, I highly recommend it. But who am i for you to listen to me? I'm just a guy who was blown away by this incredible staff, business, and experience.
