PRESBYOPIA AND TIRED SIGHT

 

WHAT IS PRESBYOPIA?

“Presbyopia or tired sight is a visual difficulty that appears over the years and causes problems when focusing on nearby objects.”

The lens, a natural lens of the eye, makes the effort necessary to see closely. This effort, known as an ” accommodation reflex, ” becomes more difficult over the years, and as a consequence, objects in the near vision look worse .

  • symptom
  • Symptoms of Presbyopia
  • Extend your arms or lift your glasses so you do not see blur
  • Visual fatigue and headache when reading closely
  • Itching or stinging eyes working with the computer
  • Difficulty reading small print
  • Far blurry objects
  • Presbyopia is not a disease, it is a natural evolution of sight from the age of 40-45 years.

IS PREVENTING TIRED SIGHT POSSIBLE?

The tired sight is an inevitable consequence of the passage of the years, a natural evolution of vision and, therefore, can not be prevented. All people end up having presbyopia sooner or later, although the most frequent one is that it manifests from the 40-45 years.

Although tired sight can not be prevented, it is possible to correct its effects with different methods. The most common: ophthalmic lenses.
