A Look at LASIK for Presbyopia

Have you noticed that your ability to focus on close objects has gotten worse as you’ve gotten older? Many adults experience this condition, known as presbyopia, by the time they reach their mid-forties. In some cases, presbyopia will continue to get worse as you age into your mid-sixties. LASIK eye surgery near Manchester can improve certain vision issues, but with presbyopia, it could actually make it more difficult to see objects at a close range. However, you should talk to your eye doctor to find out if you can have your eyes corrected with LASIK for monovision, in which one eye is corrected for distance vision and the other is corrected for close vision. There are also other new LASIK procedures being researched that can address presbyopia, so ask your eye care professional what options are available to you. Presbyopia happens to almost everyone, so be prepared by doing your research and contacting your eye doctor when you notice a change in your vision.
