Treating Age-Related Presbyopia with Eye Surgery

Presbyopia is a vision change that occurs with age. This condition causes problems with focusing on close work, which can be particularly problematic for individuals who work on computers and those who enjoy reading. If you’ve discovered that your contact lenses or eyeglasses are no longer sufficient for your vision, it’s time to make an appointment with an ophthalmologist near Chicago. An ophthalmologist may recommend eye surgery to correct your presbyopia.

As you’ll learn when you watch this video, vision correction for patients with presbyopia may involve the insertion of intraocular lenses (IOLs). This involves removing the natural lens of the eye and replacing it with a synthetic lens. Another possibility is refractive surgery. Your ophthalmologist can reshape your cornea to improve your vision.
