    Experience Life without Readers or Bifocals

    It comes with little to no warning. After years of stable, clear vision, you wake up one day and can no longer read the text on your phone. Or perhaps you start pulling books further and further away to get the words into focus. Sound familiar? You’re not alone. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, over one billion people worldwide suffer from presbyopia, a condition resulting in the loss of near vision. This natural aging process and loss of function within the lens sets in during stage one of dysfunctional lens syndrome. Symptoms of presbyopia include:

    • Difficulty seeing while driving, especially at night
    • Difficulty reading in dim light
    • Difficulty seeing near objects

    The onset of presbyopia is inevitable – most people begin experiencing symptoms in their 40s – and continues to worsen over time. The good news? You have options! While investing in a great pair of readers or bifocals can help treat the symptoms, it will not address the source of the problem. Plus, keeping track of all those readers – in your home, in the car, at the office, etc. – can be a real pain. At Durrie Vision, we specialize in refractive surgery, with a goal of getting you out of readers, glasses, and/or contacts. With six different procedures available, our surgeons are able to recommend the right option for you based on your vision and your lifestyle.
