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 Jacobson Advanced Eye Care, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

Dr. Jennifer Jacobson has been our family's eye physician for many, many years. The entire staff is ... professional and caring. Dr. Jennifer Jacobson stays on top of current research and development which has helped us through some serious health issues. There is also a strong focus at Jacobson Advanced Eye Care on maintaining eye health as well as careful guidance in pursuing better life quality with some of the current options available for vision. They are well connected with an excellent surgical team. Under careful guidance from Dr. Jennifer Jacobson and Dr. Tom Harvey, I pursued cataract surgery with vision correcting lens implants. It has been life changing to have the ability to see clearly at all distances without glasses or contacts. Cumberland is so fortunate to have the highest quality eye healthcare.

After a severe thunderstorm of a whiteout with 1” balls of hail breaking 6 of my windows, totaling... my shingles & siding —— one window broke through firing into my kitchen as though through a machine gun. Holding a cookie sheet against the upper double hung window, fighting a firing squad of hail, one hit me above my eye with eyes shut. Thank the Lord. I saw flashing lights almost continuously about 3 days later. Dr. Jennifer Jacobson Turcot dropped everything as soon as she could after her busy day, her staff left just about as soon as I came in. after hrs. (Friday) It was an emergency. She came in just for me!! I was upset after reading this could cause vision loss if you don’t see a specialist asap. (Laser surgery recommended) After many tests being very thorough she said “Your eyes look great!!” Earlier I had been prayed for and the flashing lights disappeared on the way to see Dr. Jacobson. I was healed by the power of prayer in Jesus name 😅😄😎 I had to make sure my eyes were fine. (My security, my sight) Dr Jennifer couldn’t have been more kind. I highly recommend her expertise. I love her personality. Great staff too.

I had a problem develop suddenly and was scheduled to leave town in a few days. I called at approxim... ately 8:30 and they said can you be here by 10:00. I arrived a few minutes before ten was taken to a room for some testing see by Dr. Turcott at 10:20. Diagnosis was complete by 10:35. She recommended 2 over the counter meds I began using them and I'm already seeing improvement. Great Doctor and friendly and efficient staff.

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.
