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 EyeCare Specialties of Colorado - Colorado Boulevard, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

I’ve been here 3 times in the past 5 months. Once for eye exam and twice for medical issues with a... n eye (black eye skiing, scratched eye). All times staff was accommodating, friendly and patient. Wait times were reasonable and quick.

Just sharing my experience with what was called "One Hour Optical". During my time in Denver, CO. fr... om 1997 till 2019. This business which at the time had a contract with the VAMC to help veterans with exams and glasses for free. Got two pairs of glasses from them which was a pleasant experience until I moved to Minnesota in 2019. The Minneapolis VAMC has their own eye clinic and eyeglass store in the hospital itself. I like that arrangement better. But, I liked the employees at this business during my time in Denver, CO. Edit: A reply to the owner's comment. Thank you for the sentiment, but I am in Minnesota now and can't "see you soon". Lol.

The exam was very thorough, and the cost of all the proceedings was outlined before -- whether it wa... s already covered by my insurance, or it would be an extra cost. And I had the option to postpone anything that would incur in extra cost. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming.

So greatful for this place! They are so kind and saw my sister urgently on a Saturday. She has an ex... tensive surgical history to one of her eyes and they did not hesitate to fit her in and make sure she wasn't experiencing a retinal detachment again. Thank you all so much!

Great people, and they saved my left eye. I had a retinal tear, and they saw me within 24 hours of m... e calling them, and they directed me to the right people to fix it. Very grateful.

Mitsi went to great lengths to fix an insurance mess up. Amanda was proactive in finding a couple o... f frames she thought I would like and I did! Dr. Lahoud was very patient with my need to talk and be heard.

Very professional. In and out in less then 30 mins. Dr. Emily is amazing and super helpful.
- Jul. 29, 2023
I just want to thank both Dr. Lipscomb, and Dr. Meyette. Both were extremely accommodating, attentiv... e, and informed. I would say that they both were doctors that I would happily see again- both for the aforementioned reasons and because they will have helped my eyes stay in the best shape possible. Dr. Meyette, you taking your time to calmly address my concerns (some of them repeatedly when I made it necessary) was probably the biggest relief I could have asked for when it comes to my overall health concerns. Thanks so much, sir.

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.
