Presbyopia

Specialty of Ophthalmology

Presbyopia, also known as farsightedness, is a common condition caused by aging of the eye lens, which appears especially from 40 to 45 years. More specifically, it is a lens accommodation, one of the most important parts of the eye to correct vision, and which is responsible for focusing images on the retina so we can see the sharp objects. Therefore presbyopia causes a distorted view of nearby objects, affecting close up view. This condition can be corrected with the use of glasses or contact lenses and surgery. The latter will depend on the patient's age, the state of your lens and eye defect have. Also, there are two techniques for this operation: the use of lasers, and phacoemulsification with intraocular lens placement, in which an artificial lens inside the eye is placed.
