VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron AGING EYES Along with facial wrinkles, the age-related loss of near-focusing power known as "presbyopia" is somewhat inevitable and difficult to hide. It immediately becomes clear to those with presbyopia that their near vision blurs when looking at small print. Most people begin to develop presbyopia sometime around age forty, when their natural eye lenses begin to thicken and become less flexible. Consequently, presbyopic individuals begin to hold reading material farther and farther from their eyes, until their extended arms are no longer enough. At this point, if not before, presbyopia is treated with reading glasses that restore near vision reading ability. Those with previous refractive errors wear bifocals, which supplement their original lens prescription with added near vision correction. For individuals that prefer contact lenses to glasses, bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) varieties. Experience, commitment to technology, and a genuine concern for patient welfare enable all of the doctors at SKOWRON EYE CARE and our highly qualified staff to work together to consistently deliver quality, affordable eye care. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission P.S. Those with presbyopia may notice that they become more sensitive to light and glare due to changes in aging eyes' lenses.
