Can tired eyes be prevented? What surgical solutions are currently available?
Presbyopia or tired eyes is not a pathology, it’s a degenerative process associated with the ageing of the eye, meaning it cannot be prevented. With age, around 40-45, the crystalline lens loses elasticity and therefore its accommodation, causing a loss of acuity in the near vision.
In the majority of cases, it can be corrected by using glasses or contact lenses. It’s also possible to correct it with cornea surgery that uses the latest generation lasers, intraocular lens implants and by analysing, studying and individualising the treatment for each patient.
