What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related vision condition that causes near objects to appear blurry. It typically starts in a person’s 40’s, when the lens of the eye begins to stiffen and lose flexibility. This makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects.

Presbyopia can significantly impact your quality of life. Regular daily activities like reading books, instruction manuals and food labels, scrolling through your phone, threading a needle and other close-up tasks can become daunting.

The good news is, with the help of Primary EyeCare - Brentwood., this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

I'd been going to America's Best for years but in the last year, I was never happy with my vision. I... 'd have to take glasses off to talk to someone, but put them on to see far. It was frustrating. A friend recommended Primary EyeCare and I made an appt online. Dr Martin spent so much time with me, explaining why my vision was getting wonky (I'm getting old) and she gave me a few options. After Lasik worked but my eyes had changed over time, I'd asked for contacts at another doc and they told me contacts would be too uncomfortable. Dr Martin suggested them herself and let me try a sample, also suggesting monovision. The ladies who helped with pretesting and choosing glasses/lenses are also stellar. I also liked their selection of frames and found a few options. I'm really happy with my optometrist change and feel I have more knowledge about my eyes and vision than I had before.

This is an enjoyable place to visit even if you’re going to the doctor :-). The doctors are quite ... capable and enjoyable people. The people that help you pick out glass frames are good at what they do and the ladies behind the front desk are also top notch!

I always have a great experience when I come to see Dr. Engel. The staff is very friendly, efficient... , and there are no lengthy wait times.

I have seen Dr Vanhoven for years. He is an amazing eye doctor and I will never ever see anyone else... . I recently had a eye concern that he referred me to be treated and bc of that the condition has been resolved; however he took the time to explain what it is and has also been excellent with explaining why my vision is changing, I’m 45 almost 46. He reassured me that this normal and is doing everything he can to “kick the can” as far as we can with lenses etc to ease me into the bi-focal world!! I highly recommend him as he is very patient d really takes the time to address any and all eye care concerns:)

I have loved Primary Eyecare Group of Brentwood from my very first visit there. The girls at the fro... nt are always so welcoming and helpful, and the girls in the back are efficient and knowledgeable. I have seen Dr. Van Hoven a couple of times and love his personality/bedside manner. I always enjoy seeing him for my annual eye exams. Recently, I was having some issues with my contacts and was quickly seen by Dr. Pace; she did an excellent job. She listened to me, was very thorough and we resolved the problem. My only problem now is...how can I choose between the two!? Regardless of who you see, you can not go wrong with this place, I recommend it to everyone!

Presbyopia Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What is presbyopia treatment?

Presbyopia treatment corrects age-related farsightedness to enable you to see close-up objects, such as books and electronic screens more clearly. Treatments include:

  • Eyeglasses
  • Contact lenses
  • Laser surgery
  • Lens implants
Can presbyopia be cured?

Currently, there is no cure. The good news is that our optometrists can recommend a variety of treatment options to help you see your best, from near to far.

How do I know if I have presbyopia?

If you’re over 40 and struggle with any of the following, you may have presbyopia.

  • Holding a book or a screen at arm’s length to see it more clearly
  • Needing larger print or font size to read
  • Blurry vision while reading
  • Difficulty reading in dim light
  • Eye strain and headaches when focusing on near objects

If you have one or more of these signs, schedule an eye exam and ask us about glasses, contact lenses, or other presbyopia treatment options.

Are bifocals right for me?

If it’s hard for you to read and to see things at a distance, bifocals may be your perfect solution. With bifocals, you can get two prescriptions in one. One corrects farsightedness and the other corrects nearsightedness. We offer several different types of bifocal lenses to suit your personal preference.
