After 40 years of age, most people find it increasingly difficult to read or see clearly at close range. This condition known as presbyopia is a normal part of aging. It develops as the lens of the eye becomes less flexible and loses its ability to focus on near objects, resulting in vision loss. Presbyopia should not be confused with hyperopia or farsightedness, which relates to the eyeball being too short, a feature that is present from birth.
Dr. Rex Hamilton offers several procedures in Greater Los Angeles to correct presbyopic eyes. To learn more about presbyopia correction and treatment options, request an appointment with Dr. Hamilton at the Santa Monica Eye Medical Group!
