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 Eyes on Lincoln - O Street Eyecare, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

Presbyopia Treatment Options

  • Eyeglasses

    • Prescription reading glasses
    • Bifocals: for distance and near vision correction
    • Progressive multifocals: see objects at a near, intermediate or far distance
  • Contact lenses

    • Bifocal contact lenses: different sections for reading and distance prescriptions
    • Monovision contact lenses: distance prescription in one eye and reading prescription in the other eye
  • Laser surgery

    Changes the shape of the cornea to correct vision. Some examples include:

    • LASIK
    • LASEK
    • Photorefractive keratectomy
  • Lens implant

    An eye surgeon removes your natural lens and replaces it with an intraocular lens. This new lens is flexible and can restore your ability to focus on near objects.

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.

I’ve been going to Eyes On Lincoln, since I moved to Lincoln Nebraska 7 years ago, the service was... so great I didn’t feel the need to look any farther.

New patient here! So far today was my first visit/exam. I called yesterday knowing it may take a bit... to get in, so when they called back having an opening today I jumped on it. My favorite frames broke and I was about due for an exam anyways. Going in I was greeted right away. I made sure to show up ten minutes early to get the paperwork out of the way (which wasn't bad at all and the front desk did good explaining it all.) Right when my appointment time showed, I was being called back already. First time not needing to wait compared to other places in town! With the updated technology since my last exam, it was pretty new to me but they did so great taking the time to explain each piece of equipment, and answering my random questions. When I got to the last room to be met by Dr. Weber, again I only sat for maybe five minutes tops. He showed me my scans and finished the exam. When I explained my concern of wanting to find frames similar in weight more than the looks, he introduced me to someone who knew exactly what would fit best for me. In total I was in and out in about 40 minutes. For me that's the quickest it's been. Glasses should be in in about 2 weeks which is normal for any place, will do a fitment then and give update.

I have came here for years up from a teen until an adult. I now have a 10 year old who is practicall... y blind and a serial glasses breaker 😂 I was so stressed about how to get him more glasses before school because we were just there Renee (sorry if I misspelled your name) made it so easy for me and was very patient with me. I thank you it’s enough stress I have to come in every couple of months so her being so helpful and kind definitely relieved me of some of my stress! Thank you and you definitely made my day!

I can’t say enough of how professional they have been from start to finish. Mikayla the contact le... ns specialist was knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with. Steve is a master of his craft! It’s refreshing to have such an experience after having a horrible experience with Americas “best” I was referred to Steve and Eyes on Lincoln! Best in the business

I love how persistent they are with reminding you on appointments, and making sure you’re getting ... taken care of. For someone like me who is very forgetful, and tend to push off appointments, I appreciate them being kind to me & giving friendly reminders. The O street location, has a elderly lady, who shows so much compassion for the patients and helping in anyway she can. Unfortunately, I forgot her name. 🙁 BUT you’ll definitely see her when you go to pick out your glasses. She’s too sweet to miss! Thank you for working with me with my insurance & be a great place to go to for eye care!

Dr.Gilsersleeve is one of the best eye doctors in Nebraska. My experience was great, I didn't feel ... rushed, and my expectations were met as I didn't leave with having more questions. It's refreshing having actual time with a doctor now. Dr Gildersleeve also explained financial options for me. I didn't feel pressured in buying the most expensive pair of glasses and Mallory even advised which one of the two frames I was looking at would work better with progressive lenses. Fully Satisfied 🙂

First time patient and was very satisfied. Staff was friendly and exam visit was done in a timely ma... nner. Was in and out in 35 minutes.
