The most important technology in cataract surgery is the development of specialized lenses that can reduce a patient’s reliance on eyeglasses for distance and near vision while also correcting for astigmatism.
Here at Volusia Eye Associates, we utilize the latest techniques and cutting-edge technology to help diagnose and manage ocular diseases and conditions.
The need for reading glasses is a condition called presbyopia. It’s a part of the aging process that is treated by using glasses to focus light on the retina where the natural lens was previously able to focus light. The lens inside the eye becomes firm and stops being able to change shape with time.
If you are having any new vision issues or new eye pain you should consider making an appointment immediately. The American Academy of Ophthalmology and The American Academy of Optometry recommend a yearly eye exam for those over 65 to evaluate for Macular Degeneration and other progressive eye diseases. Most eye diseases are unable to be recognized by the patient until the disease has progressed.
