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 Roberts Eyecare Associates - Sidney, 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.

When something is wrong with your eyes it can be a scary time, I don’t think anyone on earth can d... isagree with that. I seem to have more eye problems than anyone in the Southern Tier, and thank goodness for the team and Roberts Eyecare in SIDNEY! After my golf trip in Gettysburg I thought I had something in my eye, a coworker noticed my eye looked awful 3 days later and I quickly called up the team at Robert’s in Sidney. The team there promptly answered the phone as they always do, and in less than a minute they were able to squeeze me in for an emergency appointment. The doctor proceeded to pull out “the biggest thing he’s ever pulled out of an eye”, a seed pod stuck under the membrane of the eye. He said if I didn’t get there that day I would have lost my eye (just joking about that part). Sidney is a small town, I would say Robert’s Eyecare in Sidney is a top 1 or 2 business in town, I only hope someday for our children and our children’s children that the Vestal location can learn a thing or two from the FIVE STAR TEAM in Sidney!

Glad my daughter told me to go to Sidney instead of other location (which I had appointment at other... location). Took me right in for testing and no wait for Doctor to come in for examination. I had the pleasure of meeting Mary who was so helpful in helping me find the right glasses for me. She went above and beyond in every step explaining different things. The glasses came in sooner and I picked up and again I had the help of Mary. She should be commended on her outstanding Customer Service. Thanks again Mary and Roberts Eyecare of Sidney NY.

We have been using this Robert eye care for over 4 years. Everyone on staff is friendly, understandi... ng, and take the time to explain what they see. They do not over charge or force you to spend when not needed. They work well with your insurance and explain what the insurance will and will not cover. I highly recommend Roberts Eye care in Sidney NY.

After i Walked in I was greeted right away, and in the waiting area I was sitting and waiting two mi... nutes. Then I went back for my check up and those who examined me were very friendly and courteous.

Staff were really polite at front desk, as well as the nurses who were very kind, and the doctor who... was also pretty cool.

Very professional staff here! They all had pleasant attitudes & exceptional customer service skills.... . They will definitely take good care of you. I came in for an appt with my 2 small children (both under 3) and the girls up front went above and beyond to help in whatever way they could so everything ran smoothly. The doctor was very pleasant to speak with and I left my appt more educated about my vision. I definitely recommend!

PROFESSIONAL ON A PERSONAL LEVEL. Thanks again to everyone. The combination of my experiences with a... ll of you would have to be chalked up to being friendly, professional, patient,knowledgeable, courteous,and personable staff. Won't have to go there too many times before I consider you all friends instead of simply healthcare providers.

The best eyecare facility I’ve ever been to. All of the staff and nurses are so kind and they will... always take me right away and tell me to come in with no wait or hesitation if anything gets worse. Dr. Belanger is the kindest doctor I’ve ever met, he genuinely cares about his patients, and knows exactly what he’s doing. 10 out of 10 would recommend!

The best eye glass place I have ever been to. I would highly recommend to everyone. Took the time to... do a really extension exam. Way better than any other place I have been to. Also accepted my insurance. Doctor introduced himself by his first name and had an awesome handshake. I knew right away that I was going to like this place. Also eye glasses can be made right there. This place is a good choice for all.

My daughter is 4 and was referred by her school for a eye exam. All the staff were very patient with... her while waiting for her turn and great with having the paper work ready and made it simple for first timers. Then the women who did her first eye test was great and made it fun and exciting for her! The dr was amazing and very very kid friendly! He had to put drops in her eyes and distracted her while putting them in and kept her smiling then they put on cartoons for us while we waited for the drops to dilate her eyes! He also explained everything to me in simple terms and took time to answer all of my questions and concerns. Also the man who helps picks out glasses with you made her feel super special with explaining how they make lenses for the glasses you pick out just for you and that they wouldn’t work for anyone but her! She had a great first time experience and it means a lot sense we will be visiting there often because sadly her eye sight isn’t good but hopefully it will get better with the glasses and this team of amazing people to help!
