FARSIGHTEDNESS and Common Age-Related Eye Diseases, Disorders

Some of the most common age-related eye conditions show themselves through vision that is blurry up close. When being farsighted is not linked with age, it’s called hyperopia. When it occurs in aging eyes, however, it’s called presbyopia. This is because the causes of the farsightedness are different even if symptoms appear the same.

Presbyopia is caused by inelasticity of the lens in the eye. The lens is constantly being adjusted by a muscle (called the ciliary body), in response to changes in focal distances. When the lens is less able to adjust its shape to compensate for viewing at different distances, blurry vision occurs. This is especially noticed when doing activities that are up close, like reading or checking your phone.

As mentioned before, regular eye treatment is an essential key to maintain eye health. This is, in part, because many common eye diseases share the same initial symptoms, but their treatments will vary based on the root cause. Conditions like those listed below, and many more, may all start with the similar symptoms:

Whatever the cause of your declining eyesight, Dr. Bingham and the team at Clear Eye Total Eye Care are prepared to help. After an affordable eye exam, our optician can show you options for vision correction by helping with choosing, buying, and adjusting new eyeglasses, or ordering the type of prescription contact lenses best suited for your condition. All of this is made more affordable by our vision plans designed to help those who need an eye doctor but are without vision insurance.
