Lexington Park Leader: Getting Older? Notice Changes in Your Eyesight?

April 15, 2016

Dr. Mark Whitten of Whitten Laser Eye asks: Have you noticed some changes in your vision? Are you over 45 and find it more difficult to see up close? Have you had to readjust the font size on your mobile device? How many pairs of over-the-counter reading glasses do you have stashed around your house, office and car?

You are not alone, Dr. Whitten says. You have presbyopia.

Presbyopia is part of the natural aging process of the eye. Technically, presbyopia is the loss of the eye’s ability to change its focus to see objects that are near. Between the ages of 40-45 the eye begins to lose flexibility. Presbyopia is not a disease, but a treatable eye condition. The most common treatment for presbyopia is reading glasses, but there is another option that has recently grown in popularity and is offered at Whitten Laser Eye. Read on and learn about the KAMRA Inlay and how it should be your go-to solution for presbyopia.
