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 Memorial Eye Center - Eldridge, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

My mother-in-law doesn’t wear glasses nor have an optometrist. She scratched her eye and they imme... diately agreed to see her. She got exactly the help she needed as opposed to waiting in an ER to likely still not see the right specialist. Thank you! She definitely will be a return customer for regular care and we really appreciate the help.

I needed new eye glasses, but I wanted to try some place new that was close to my home. I located Me... morial Eye Center on Eldridge near the I-10. From the time we walked in to the time we walked out the service was great. No sale pressure, friendly atmosphere and treated with respect. The eye examine went well, and they checked for everything, which I needed them to do. The price for glasses were reasonable, but the lens and a few other added things could be expensive. Overall, I would recommend Memorial Eye Center. Ask for Vanessa. Spider webs need to be clean up in the exam room behind the door and in the corners.

I would highly recommend Dr John Tavares. I have been visiting him for the last 3 years. He is highl... y professional and take time to examine and explain each step in simple terms. I did have some issues with my prescription specs which led to delays. However the new Manager Ms Alicia has improved the response with auto updates for pick up by text and email. Overall a very good experience at Memorial eye centre.

I was absolutely amazed by the service, everyone was so kind and welcoming. Dr. Tavares was super th... orough and sweet throughout with the exam and so was the male receptionist (who kinda looks like vin diesel lol) was super awesome too! Thanks for the new glasses and all the help! 🙂 Certainly will come back and recommend it to all my family/friends!

I missed my yearly eye appointment at the Eldridge location due to the Harvey flooding. I was able t... o go to another location for my reading glasses that Dr. Tavares (in previous yearly eye exams said would come with age). I returned to the Eldridge location and the service I received from reception to Dr. Porter (my first time seeing her) to opting for a 2nd pair of readers and selecting frames was impressive. The level of service I received was a definite reminder of why I choose to go the Memorial Eye at Eldridge. Outstanding service that will have you referring family and friends for great eye care.

I have been coming here over 20 years. Eye exam is always efficient and thorough . I love the per... sonnel especially Dr. Porier and Vanessa. Just picked up my new glasses and love them. Great fit. I recommend them to friends always.

I was leaving town on business with very little notice and was almost out of daily wear contacts. I... was afraid I wasn't going to be able to get in for an exam to renew my prescription of contacts in time. Thankfully, Memorial Eye found me an opening at a different branch than the one I normally go to. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Everyone seemed very professional and the appointment was quick and easy. I am very grateful and would have no qualms recommending either branch to friends or family. My only gripe is the price of contacts; although, as bad as my vision is, I guess it’s a small price to pay for clear sight.

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.
