Are You Struggling with Reading Small Print or Needing More Light to See Up Close?

Presbyopia – commonly known as near-vision impairment – is a natural part of the aging process, often noticeable from the age of 40 and beyond. This eye condition blurs near vision and makes it challenging to read, do needlework, or perform tasks that require precise focus at a close range. The Department of Ophthalmology at Burjeel Day Surgery Center, Al Reem, Abu Dhabi is home to state-of-the-art solutions and a highly skilled faculty, dedicated to restoring your near vision.

What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is a condition where the eye’s lens loses flexibility, making it difficult to focus on close objects. It’s not a disease but rather a natural part of aging. Traditional corrective measures include reading glasses and bifocals; however, with advancements in ophthalmic technology, there are now more permanent solutions available.

The Biological Process:

As we age, the natural lens in our eye gradually loses its flexibility, restricting its ability to change shape and focus on closer objects — a process essential for clear near vision. This phenomenon generally becomes noticeable in our early to mid-40s.

Symptoms to Watch For:

  • The need to hold reading materials at arm’s length
  • Blurred vision at normal reading distance
  • Eye fatigue along with headaches when doing close-up work
