Presbyopia and reading glasses in Fort Lee

Welcome and thank you for choosing our office! At Palisades Optometrics, we’re committed to maintaining the quality and health of your vision. Whatever your eyecare needs may be, our trained and experienced optometrist here at Palisades Optometrics is here to provide you with the most advanced services to enhance and protect your eyesight. As your 07605 eye doctor, we strive to meet the needs of our patients and to exceed their expectations by delivering an unparalleled level of care.

As frustrating as it might feel, as we grow older, presbyopia is a part of the natural aging process of the eye. Developing gradually over a long period of time, it is the result of the lens of the eye and the ring of muscle fibers where light enters the eye losing their flexibility. With the onset of presbyopia, your near vision becomes blurry. It may also be accompanied by eyestrain, fatigue or headaches after reading or doing close up work. Because the early symptoms of some serious and progressive eye diseases can also appear around this time, a comprehensive baseline eye exam at Palisades Optometric, your 07605 eye doctor is recommended for everyone at the age of 40.

Once the overall health of your eyes has been established, your 07605 eye doctor can recommend the appropriate corrective lenses to treat your presbyopia, along with any other vision deficits.

While over-the-counter reading glasses purchased from a drugstore or online can provide what seems to be adequate vision improvement for some people, these one size fits all glasses have several drawbacks. For one thing, the prescription in both lenses is the same, which is not the usual situation in real life. In addition the optical center of these lenses may not correspond to the actual optical center of your eyes. Some of these eyeglasses may also be made of poor quality materials and contain defects.

To avoid any problems that wearing an incorrect pair of glasses can cause, it is best to see your optometrist at Palisades Optometric, your 07605 eye doctor, to provide you with the correct, well-fitting and customized pair. While it may cost a little bit more, it is the best way to insure that your prescription is completely accurate and that your reading glasses are made of the highest quality and most durable materials.
