What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related vision condition that causes near objects to appear blurry. It typically starts in a person’s 40’s, when the lens of the eye begins to stiffen and lose flexibility. This makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects.

Presbyopia can significantly impact your quality of life. Regular daily activities like reading books, instruction manuals and food labels, scrolling through your phone, threading a needle and other close-up tasks can become daunting.

The good news is, with the help of Shawnee Optical - Lima, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

I came here from another office because I was not happy at my old eye care center anymore. From the ... moment I walked in the door, I was met with a smile and friendly eager staff ready to help me. Dr. Wagner is knowledgeable, personable, and down to earth. The young man who helped my pick out my frames was very helpful and honest as well, which I appreciated too. I absolutely love my new glasses and for the 1st time in my life, I feel confident wearing glasses.

This store, is AMAZING. I’m a single mom of a special needs son, he was struggling while I was fil... ling out paperwork and while I was looking at frames, the ladies at the desk got his attention and kept him occupied while I managed to get everything else done ❤️ I will forever be grateful for the caring and compassionate staff here!

Excellent Service, all the staff was polite and pleasant. Dr. Wagnor is top notch and extremely prof... essional and caring. Her attention to detail and ensuring that I understood the results of my exam was both refreshing and enlighten. The young man that help me pick out my glasses (standard and safety) was well verse and able to answer all my questions and concerns. His professionalism was also top notch. Shawnee Optical was the only eye exam/care facility that had available appointments within a reasonable amount of time from when I placed it. The extensive eye wear show room is filled with different designs and styles, enough to find exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks to the staff and Doctor that helped me to see better again.

Presbyopia Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What is presbyopia treatment?

Presbyopia treatment corrects age-related farsightedness to enable you to see close-up objects, such as books and electronic screens more clearly. Treatments include:

  • Eyeglasses
  • Contact lenses
  • Laser surgery
  • Lens implants
Can presbyopia be cured?

Currently, there is no cure. The good news is that our optometrists can recommend a variety of treatment options to help you see your best, from near to far.

How do I know if I have presbyopia?

If you’re over 40 and struggle with any of the following, you may have presbyopia.

  • Holding a book or a screen at arm’s length to see it more clearly
  • Needing larger print or font size to read
  • Blurry vision while reading
  • Difficulty reading in dim light
  • Eye strain and headaches when focusing on near objects

If you have one or more of these signs, schedule an eye exam and ask us about glasses, contact lenses, or other presbyopia treatment options.

Are bifocals right for me?

If it’s hard for you to read and to see things at a distance, bifocals may be your perfect solution. With bifocals, you can get two prescriptions in one. One corrects farsightedness and the other corrects nearsightedness. We offer several different types of bifocal lenses to suit your personal preference.
