Modern presbyopia treatments
Presbyopia usually begins at the age of 40 and cannot be prevented irrespective of whether or not one wears glasses. Those who wear glasses for farsightedness normally do not feel presbyopia.
Presbyopia is caused by the loss of the eye's accommodation ability and is believed to be caused by an age-related process causing the natural lens of the eye to gradually thicken and lose its flexibility. Presbyopia most commonly begins at the age of 40-45 and fully develops at the age of 50-60. Presbyopia may occur even earlier in diabetics and patients with a history of hyperopia or in those with myopia, who are accustomed to close visual tasks such as studying without wearing eyeglasses.
With the introduction of modern technologies, ophthalmologists are now able to insert optical devices inside the cornea using laser technology and correct the visual acuity. This method is currently known as KAMRA inlay.
