Regain the ability to focus up close without glasses again
Presbyopia: age-related loss of close-up vision
When we’re young, the lens of the eye is flexible. It’s attached to muscles that make it bulge or flatten to focus on objects at different distances. Once we hit about age 40, though, the lens begins to harden. As the lense loses flexibility, the eye loses the ability to focus on near objects.
This is when we turn to reading glasses—around our necks, in our pockets, in every room of the house. Not only is it inconvenient—it’s a reminder every day that we’re getting older!
Dr. Siepser offers a range of new solutions for presbyopia
Dr. Siepser has several procedures that can give you back close vision, depending on your eyes and what you need. He is one of only 100 surgeons nationwide who offer the new Raindrop® procedure for presbyopia.
Some patients can have the old lens replaced with a new, flexible lens that is attached to the muscles of the eye. Called Refractive Lens Exchange, or RLE, these accommodate for distance like a natural lens. As a bonus, since they replace the lens, they can treat or even prevent vision loss due to cataracts at the same time!
Few surgeons in the area offer as many options for restoring your youthful vision as Dr. Siepser, and virtually none have his wide and deep experience with older eyes.
