Alternatives to Reading Glasses
Why You Need Reading Glasses – What is “Presbyopia”?
Most people over age of 40 find themselves needing to wear reading glasses to see up close. This is due to the naturally-occurring vision condition called presbyopia where the eye lens becomes less flexible over time, making it increasingly difficult to read without glasses. Even people with 20/20 distance vision will develop presbyopia. Many people actually seek out LASIK care when they become dependent on reading correction for their close and computer activities.
CorrectVision Laser Institute offers options to improve your reading vision:
- Monovision LASIK Procedure
When we are younger, LASIK vision correction is performed to correct primarily distance vision needs. As we become presbyopic, we can modify the LASIK procedure so that it corrects one eye for distance vision and one eye for near vision. The eyes then work together to provide a full range of vision at all distances. Monovision is a tried and true approach for reading needs that dates back to even before LASIK, as it was (and is) used by many contact lens doctors.
