Why You Need Reading Glasses
Many people over age 40 need to wear reading glasses to see up close. This is due to the naturally-occurring vision condition called presbyopia where the eye lens becomes less flexible over time, making it increasingly difficult to read without glasses. Even people with 20/20 vision – and those who have had laser vision correction in the past – can get presbyopia.
Dr. Reena Patel offers two options to improve your reading vision:
- KAMRA™ Inlay: the inlay, a circular disk with a tiny opening in the center, is placed within the first few layers of the cornea in your non-dominant eye to restore near vision while also maintaining distance vision in your dominant eye.
- Refractive Lens Exchange: this process involves removing the natural eye lens and replacing it with an artificial Intraocular Lens (IOL) that is designed specifically to help you achieve the clear vision you want.
Other options include bifocal lenses or monovision contact lenses, where one contact is set for distance vision and the other contact is set for close-up vision.
