PRESBYOPIA

Presbyopia often occurs between the ages of 40 and 50: small sized text becomes increasingly dfficult to read. Thanks to state-of-the-art medical technology, we can offer you various solutions to free you from reading glasses.

WHICH TREATMENT OF PRESBYOPIA IS BEST SUITABLE FOR ME?

Presbyopia can not be stopped by medicine or eye training. Thanks to modern medical technology we can offer you different ways to treat presbyopia to start a life without glasses. In a first examination and consultation we will inform you which method is best suitable for your eyes. For example the implantation of multifocal lenses can correct presbyopia and at the same time also other eye disorders like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. With the innovative LenSx laser lens surgery, EuroEyes now offers even more safety.

HOW DOES PRESBYOPIA DEVELOP?

Young People without Presbyopia

Presbyopia is the natural aging process and is therefore not a disease. The flexibility of the natural lens gradually decreases from birth. While we are still young, the lenses in our eyes are still extremely flexible. It ensures that incident light rays are focused in the middle of the retina to form a focal point (Figure 1). When focusing in the distance, the lens flattens, whereas it curves to focus up close (Figure 2 + 3). This adaptability of the lens is called accommodation. It allows us to easily fixate on both close and distant objects, and depict a sharp image on the retina.

With Age, the Lens Loses its Elasticity

With age the lens loses its elasticity by a gradual hardening process and becomes increasingly stiff. Objects in the distance can still be seen because the lens is flat in the initial position (Figure 4). This makes the lens loose its ability to adjust for a sharp vision on close objects. In this context we speak of a loss of accommodation in the lens. With the loss of accommodation the lens is no longer capable of sharply depicting images on the center of the retina. The focal point is relocated behind the retina (Figure 5 + 6). This leads to reading problems at first and to blurred vision at a later point in time, even when working on a computer.
