Presbyopia

As we age, the natural lens in our eye becomes less flexible. This lack of flexibility compromises the eye’s ability to switch from one focal point (objects at a distance) to another focal point (objects that are close). The practical effect of this loss of flexibility in the natural lens of the eye is that we lose our ability to read or see close objects without reading glasses or bifocals. This is called presbyopia.

Feel free to ask Dr. Genge anything regarding presbyopia, corrective surgeries, or any other eye health issues.
