Las Vegas's Best Presbyopia Eye Exam!

It used to be that the only solution to presbyopia was to get reading glasses. For those who already needed corrective lenses, the only option was to wear bifocals.

Nowadays, people 40+ years of age continue to live active lifestyles and don’t want to be burdened with reading glasses, especially when they’re in their snazzy sunglasses on a mountain trail.

Presbyopia is a common and natural form of nearsightedness that nearly everyone develops to some degree as our eyes age.  As we get older, the lens of the eye begins to harden and light no longer focuses on the retina properly when we try to look at objects up close. This results in having to hold reading material and other objects further away to focus properly, while reading small print becomes more and more difficult. In addition to problems reading, it also commonly causes both headaches and eyestrain. Presbyopia can be diagnosed easily with an eye exam and can usually be treated with contacts or reading glasses.

Multifocal Contacts are an advanced solution to presbyopia for active living.
Multifocal contact lenses provide complete vision correction conveniently and un-intrusively. They combine the multiple focus capability of progressive lenses or bifocals with all the convenience of contacts. Today, these contacts are available in multiple configuration options so they can be paired with the best option for your vision needs and preferences. Even astigmatism is no barrier to comfortable, natural, and effective multi-focus vision.

Multifocal Contact Lenses: Why They Are Better than Reading Glasses

It is no surprise that many people over 40 prefer contact lenses to reading glasses. Your reading glasses may not give you the precise vision you need for distances. You may constantly be adjusting the distance of your phone screen, menu or food label away from your face to find a spot where you can see the writing more clearly.

These vision problems are caused by presbyopia, and it affects almost everyone at middle age. As we age, the lenses in our eyes become less and less flexible. This makes it hard for the lenses to change shape when needing to focus on something.

Multi-focal contact lenses are convenient as you can maintain sharp and clear distance vision and still have clear intermediate mid-range vision and a reasonably clear near vision. Unlike with reading glasses,where you have to keep alternating between wearing and taking them off to fit your vision needs, these stay on at all times.

Multi-focal lenses can come in handy for people with jobs or activities that involve seeing close-up and far way, such as on construction sites or a shop. With multi-focal lenses you can see people and objects at all distances and up close from a screen or menu without get ting your glasses out.

Multifocals, The Alternative To Reading Glasses

You can leave your reading glasses at home when going on an evening out, a party or are on holiday. Not everyone likes the idea of wearing spectacles in such occasions. That is where multi-focal lenses come in and give you the freedom to go out without needing your glasses. They serve you with multiple vision needs within one space. You can read the restaurant menu, your phone, and guidebook, watch people, spot your friends from a crowd, see the sites of the city and even go to the theater or cinema, all without your reading glasses. You do not have to change spectacles in between each venue.

If you visit the gym regularly, are an athlete or a footballer, these lenses are to your advantage. Whatever your exercise routine or training is, presbyopia need not be a nuisance for you. It is easier to workout in multi-focal lenses than in reading glasses especially if it is intense. You can watch television in the gym and still read the monitor on the machine without having to stop either activity.

The disposable multi-focal lenses are great for people who prefer the convenience of fresh lenses every day. At YESnick Vision Center, serving Spring Valley, Summerlin and Las Vegas, we provide soft and flexible lenses that offer all-day comfort. Given their thin nature, they allow oxygen to reach your eyes. Our Summerlin optometrists also benefit from fitting their patients with multi-focal lenses. Other than the gratification of satisfying the needs of our patients, we get an increase in patient referrals. When we have successfully fit a patient with multi-focal lenses, the chances are in their enthusiasm and excitement they will tell a friend and family member who will be referred to us as well. As they say a happy patient, a happy doctor.
