What is presbyopia anyway and how is it treated?

Presbyopia Explained

What is presbyopia? Presbyopia is Greek for “elder eyes,” appropriate since it afflicts people after forty. While forty may not be considered ancient any more, your eyes start to age more rapidly, and the muscle fibers in the lens as well as the proteins within the lens become harder and less flexible. As a result, you're less able to focus when you view something close up.

You have a varied choice of presbyopia treatments, from Lasik presbyopia surgery to the conductive keratoplasty (CK) presbyopia treatment to surgical reversal of presbyopia with scleral expansion bands. And of course, there are always progressive aspheric and contact lenses.
