We provide professional support in Presbyopia.
As with every tissue in the body, eye tissue ages over
time. Some permanent problems may occur due to aging. One of these
problems is presbyopia.
It is a near vision disorder that occurs when the lens in the eye loses its
adaptability, regresses its ability to focus, and loses the flexibility of the
lens in the eye. Although it is not known exactly what causes the lenses
to lose their flexibility due to age, it is also accepted as a visual
impairment caused by aging.
Everyone should have regular eye check-ups from the age of 40. Although an eye
check every 2 years is considered normal, it is much healthier to be examined
once a year. An annual check-up also helps to detect eye problems early
and to use easier treatment methods.
Presbyopia; In fact, it is the same as hyperopia. Objects in the area close to the eye
stay behind the retina at the focal point of the rays coming into the eye,
causing it to be difficult to see the rays out of focus.
This eye disease may not cause symptoms in some people. It
usually occurs in controls.
In general, the problems that people complain about are as follows;
The most common complaints are the inability to read the texts while reading a book
or newspaper, the desire to zoom out when looking closely, and the blurring of
the view when trying to read closely.
If the disease progresses, pain begins to appear in the forehead and temple areas.
Although the exact reason could not be found, some
opinions emerged as a result of the studies. This eye problem, which
usually starts after the age of 35, is the hardening of the lens over time and
losing its flexibility due to this hardening.
The lens in the eye is transparent. It is flexible and structurally surrounded
by a capsule. Unfortunately, some eye cells do not have the ability to
self-renew. For this reason, eye problems do not heal on their own.
