|Improve Your Vision With Presbyopia Correction |
Presbyopia or somethings known as adult longsightedness are people whom finds it hard to focus on objects too close to them as it appears blurry to them. Presbyopia typically affects people who are 40 years and older. This is different from hyperopia, which are people whom are not able to focus on near object at a young age as a result of their eyeball being shorter than normal.
Many people finds presbyopia very irritating. For those whom has good vision, they now have to wear glasses when they read near. For those whom are myopic and already need vision correction device for far, may now need a separate pair of glasses for near vision. This is especially inconvenient as work often requires them to use the computers, read their handphone messages and so on.
Fortunately, with presbyopia correction, it is possible to treat this condition and improve your vision. Read on to know more about the various symptoms and treatments on presbyopia, so that you can then determine the best presbyopia treatment for you.
Symptoms And Treatments On Presbyopia
Here are the signs and symptoms of presbyopia:
Causes Of Presbyopia
The main cause of presbyopia is believed to be age related. As a person ages, the proteins in their natural eye lens undergo changes, thereby making the lens harder and less elastic as the years go by. The ciliary muscles around the eye lens also weaken with age and are thus unable to contract as required. All these factors cause the eye lens to lose its elasticity and flexibility. When performing near visual work, the lens and muscles has to be more flexible to focus on near objects. As a result of the loss of elasticity and flexibility, the eye is unable to focus on close objects, thus leading to presbyopia.
Options For Presbyopia Treatment
The most common wear of presbyopia treatment is the prescription of corrective lenses. However, besides the inconvenience of having to wear corrective lenses, the patient is likely to need to change their prescription lenses every 6 ĘC 12 months as their eyes age further. This disadvantage similarly applies for presbyopia surgery. Only vision therapy that enhance the healthy function of the eye, especially the eye's accommodation system is able to delay the onset of presbyopia. Details of these three options are further presented below.
Presbyopia correction can be achieved in the following ways:
1. Corrective eyewear for presbyopia repair:
The following types of eyewear can be used to treat presbyopia:
2. Presbyopia surgery: Various surgical options for presbyopia repair are available nowadays. Here's a brief look at them:
In addition to the above, various other surgical options for presbyopia repair include Surgical Reversal of Presbyopia, Laser Presbyopia Reversal, Corneal Inlays, and Refractive Lens Exchange. However, most of these are still awaiting the approval of the FDA to be recognized as approved surgeries for presbyopia treatment.
3. Presbyopia training your eyes:
Vision therapy, especially those that improves the accommodation system of the eyes, are an effective means of delaying the on-set and progression of presbyopia. However, vision therapy requires a lot of determination and discipline as it generally requires almost 30 minutes of daily practice. However, with the aid of modern technology such as EyeRelax, it is able to achieve better effectiveness at a shorter time. EyeRelax makes use of the latest visual fields research, enabling it to improve both the retina activity(visual neuro) and accommodative system. EyeRelax is hence very successful at presbyopia repair.
With the help of these devices, you can train your accommodation system and improve the healthy function of the eyes, thus retaining the flexibility of our lenses and eye muscles. It is extremely helpful for those with onset presbyopia to achieve presbyopia correction, and those already suffering to improve their eyesight, and also delay the progression of it. In fact, by using these devices for presbyopia training, your eyes benefit greatly as overall vision is enhanced.
