Frequently Asked Questions
Presbyopia Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I know if I have presbyopia?
Presbyopia should be clinically diagnosed after an examination from a board certified ophthalmologist; however, most patients find precursory symptoms of presbyopia include not being able to read items like a menu or the newspaper close-up.
Will presbyopia develop if I’ve had LASIK previously?
Yes, Presbyopia is inevitable in adults, typically between the ages of 37 and 47, even with previous successful LASIK surgery. However, there are effective Presbyopia treatments for adults who have and have not had laser vision correction surgery.
How do I know if I’m a candidate for presbyopia-correcting IOLs?
Intraocular lens replacement surgery to correct presbyopia is appropriate for those patients who wish to reduce or eliminate their dependency on reading glasses to view objects up-close and have cataracts. It’s important to first undergo a thorough pre-surgery consultation with Dr. Segal before deciding which presbyopia treatment option is best for your needs.
