South Milwaukee Optometrist for Presbyopia
What is Presbyopia?
Presbyopia is an extremely common vision issue that causes blurred vision when reading, working on the computer, or doing other tasks requiring visual focus. Presbyopia develops in people 40 and over, and is sadly unavoidable. Even if you’ve had perfect vision in your teens, 20s, and 30s, presbyopia will affect you.
Milwaukee’s Grange Vision performs comprehensive eye exams for all patients, which includes complete evaluation of eye health, vision acuity, and measuring eye refraction. Our professional optometrists make you feel as comfortable as possible, prescribe your best eye care options, and answer all of your questions.
Blurred Vision Happens to Everyone
Slight vision-loss is common, but why does presbyopia happen to so many people?
The reason is simple: As people age, the natural lens of their eye loses its flexibility and slowly develops a thickening substitute. As a result, the eye has a much harder time focusing on things up-close.
What Can I Do to Prevent Presbyopia?
Although presbyopia can happen to anyone, keeping your eyes healthy is still very important. You only get two of them!
Take care of your vision by:
- Maintaining a healthy diet, which includes fruits, vegetables, & fish
- Wearing sunglasses when you’re outside in the sunshine
- Wearing protective eyewear while running or being active outdoors
- Attending regular eye exams with Grange Vision
