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

When arriving at Dr. Storza’s office I was greeted by a very professional and friendly secretary a... t the front desk. Doctor Storza was very thorough with examination of my eyes. He was very respectful and answered a couple questions I had in a very sincere way. Love the extensive lines of eye wear available. Normally get Silhouettes, but chose a similar more economical brand . Been searching for an eye doctor like this for four years after moving to Youngstown. Heard of him by word of mouth from one of my clients. Thank you Dr. Storza and staff for a wonderful experience.

I have always been very impressed with Dr. Sforza. He takes time while doing your exam, discuss the ... results and answer any questions you may have. I have never felt as though he was in a rush. The first time I saw Dr. Sforza was for a second opinion, 10+ years ago. I have never thought of going somewhere else since that first appointment. The ladies who work the front desk are great!!

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.
