General Eye Care
Presbyopia occurs when the lens of the eye loses its flexibility making it difficult to focus up close. Typically, we first notice presbyopia when we begin having difficulty seeing up close to read. Presbyopia is part of the aging process and typically begins to affect our vision between the ages of 40 and 50. Common signs of presbyopia include a tendency to hold your reading materials further away from you to see them, eye fatigue and headaches.

The degree of presbyopia is detected through a comprehensive eye examination at Tri County Eye Institute and reading glasses or contact lenses prescribed to correct your vision. Monovision LASIK performed by Dr. Schneider is also possible treatment for presbyopia. This involves reshaping the dominant eye for distance vision and the non-dominant eye is corrected for close vision.
