Presbyopia, commonly known as Lao Hua Yan, or middle age sight/ middle age farsightedness is an age-related condition typically starting at around age 38 and above and affects everyone, even those who’ve never had vision problems before, in which the lens of the eye loses its ability to focus, making it difficult to see objects up close.

Presbyopia affects people from the age of 40 or older. The main symptom is a difficulty in reading fine print. You know you have presbyopia when you have difficulty reading a restaurant menu, finding someone’s phone number in your mobile phone or looking at price tags while shopping.

Presbyopia affects everyone. When Presbyopia begins, people who already wear glasses may need bifocals or multifocals, and those who have never worn glasses may require reading glasses.

For centuries, presbyopia meant dependence on the use of bifocal glasses. Today there are many ways to alleviate or even eliminate dependence on glasses through surgery. At Clearvision Eye Clinic, we are industry leaders in the following advanced technologies to correct presbyopia:

  1. Supracor
  2. Monovision Epi-LASIK
  3. Lens Implant & Multifocal IOL ( Intra Ocular Lens implant)
