Welcome To Eyeworld Vision Center
Presbyopia is a vision condition in which the crystalline lens of your eye loses its flexibility, which makes it difficult for you to focus on close objects.
Presbyopia may seem to occur suddenly, but the actual loss of flexibility takes place over a number of years. Presbyopia usually becomes noticeable in the early to mid-40s. Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process of the eye. It is not a disease, and it cannot be prevented.
Some signs of presbyopia include the tendency to hold reading materials at arm's length, blurred vision at normal reading distance and eye fatigue along with headaches when doing close work. A comprehensive optometric examination will include testing for presbyopia.
To help you compensate for presbyopia, your optometrist can prescribe reading glasses, bifocals, trifocals or contact lenses. Because presbyopia can complicate other common vision conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, your optometrist will determine the specific lenses to allow you to see clearly and comfortably. You may only need to wear your glasses for close work like reading, but you may find that wearing them all the time is more convenient and beneficial for your vision needs.
Because the effects of presbyopia continue to change the ability of the crystalline lens to focus properly, periodic changes in your eyewear may be necessary to maintain clear and comfortable vision.
To all of our loyal supporters:
In 2010 we will celebrate our 25th year serving the eye care needs of South Alabama.
I think back to our early days, (1985 in Chickasaw) and I’m astonished at your level of support
throughout the years. Thank you!
We’re fully aware that our accomplishments are not simply attributable to good management
or hard-working employees. We grew and prospered with God’s Blessing and because we
found some great friends like you who gave us loyal support along the way. We want to let
you know how much we appreciate you continuing to rely on our office for your vision care
So this is a thank-you note—for allowing us to care for your vision needs, for putting up with
occasional errors due to “growing pains,” and just for helping to put Eyeworld Vision Center
on the map. The future looks bright, and we want to acknowledge your contribution to this
rosy outlook. As we say in Alabama, “’Preciate it!”
