Presbyopia is the loss of the lens's ability to change the focus of the eye through adaptation, in which the eye muscles change the shape of the lens. Presbyopia begins in the early years of the forties and everyone is affected. The main problem is the same as that of hyperopia. The focal point of the light rays from nearby objects remains at the back of the retina and is out of focus. In hyperopia, the reason for this is that the eyeball is shorter than normal. The reason for this is that the old lens becomes harder and the flexibility is reduced. This makes it difficult or impossible for the rays of light to bend sharply to make the focal point ahead of the retina. Presbyopia When you are tired, reading at night or in low light can be even more difficult. Presbyopia occurs regardless of how your vision defect is. The first sign of presbyopia is the need to remove objects while reading. In later times, this blurred vision is further increased and pain occurs in the forehead, temple area. Focusing the eye on close objects will cause other problems with time. After reading, it may be difficult to temporarily see distant objects clearly, because distant objects also require alignment to focus. The only solution of presbyopia is optical correction (reading glasses or contact lenses). Persons with corrective lenses for myopia need double-focus glasses (the upper part is for distant vision and the lower part is for near vision) or they use two separate glasses. Due to the deterioration of presbyopia, prescriptions written up to the end of 60s often change. When it comes to these ages, the presbyopia becomes stagnant From the age of 60-65, the focus of the eye actually stops because the lens loses its elasticity; at this stage, the relative becomes completely dependent on the glasses. However, those who are myopia may, in some cases, be able to take their glasses away and see more easily when doing close work while they are close to it.
What are the Symptoms of Presbyopia?
Patients with presbyopia patients 50 cm. It is difficult to see when they bring closer to. Therefore, they can see the objects by removing. In later times, if the relative is still distorted, he may be accompanied by headache in the forehead and temple area.
How to Treat Presbyopia?
There are many treatment modalities on this subject in the world. These treatment methods have advantages and disadvantages compared to itself. Intraocular multifocal lens operations and presbylasic laser treatments which are accepted as the most reliable method for the treatment of presbyopia are successfully applied in our hospital.
1. Treatment with glasses
Bifocal Glasses Multifocal Glasses
2. Contact Lens Treatment
Multifocal contact lenses: Patients who are eligible for lenses receive successful results when using these lenses. However, there may be problems in use due to decrease in tear quality in patients over 40 years of age. Monovision with contact lenses (one eye myopia): Whether you are eligible for this treatment or not, your initial examination may be obvious.
3. Surgical Therapy
There are 3 places that can be applied surgical intervention.
a. Corneal Presbylasik Treatment Monovision Excimer Laser Treatment
b. Lens Multifocal Lenses Adaptive Lenses
