What Is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related focus dysfunction that results in the gradual loss of near vision in people over the age of 35. More than 55 percent of people over the age of 35 in North and South America, Asia and Africa have some degree of presbyopia, with women affected more often and more severely, according to a study published by the Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins University. Presbyopia is typically treated with reading glasses or contact lenses.
A potentially breakthrough procedure that could help people get their reading vision back has promising results in an ongoing FDA study. Dr. Bruce Hensel reports for NBC4 News at 6 p.m. Monday, July 7, 2014.

Presbia FLEXIVUE MICROLENS™ Technology

Exciting advances in ophthalmology now allow patients to choose corneal inlays to correct presbyopia. In contrast to other alternative treatments to reading glasses and contact lenses, such as monovision LASIK or more invasive intraocular lens replacement surgery, the Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ technology can be an excellent option. Most importantly, it is designed to be easily removable and replaceable if, for instance, the patient's presbyopia advances and a new prescription is needed.
