Q&A with Dr. B

Dr. Barnstein Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Whether it’s the computer, surfing the net on your smart phone, texting, or desk work, eventually most of us around 40 start to notice some forms of eye strain at near. Presbyopia is when the ability of your eyes to focus at near start to gradually decrease. WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT? 

1. Single Vision Reading/Computer Glasses: This is a simple solution, where it’s still important to visit your eye doctor to get the most accurate prescription. Over the counter readers can seem to help, but they do not correct any astigmatism (oval shape of the eye which causes distortion), and most people have different prescriptions in each eye. To minimize strain at near, be sure to visit your eye doctor to obtain the most accurate near prescription.

2. Progressive lenses (no line bifocals): This gives people the ability to see at both distance and near, without having 2 pairs of glasses, or having to take reading glasses off to see at distance. It’s important to note that not all progressive lenses are the same. Many discount retail opticals sell progressives at a low price, but the optics can be lower in quality. At Professional Vision, we fit a premium progressive with high quality optics, which can give a wider reading area, less distortion, and a smoother transition from distance to near.

3. Contact Lenses (Multifocal Options): The doctors at Professional Vision specialize in “difficult to fit” contact lenses. Personally, I wear a one day disposable multifocal contact lens in one eye, and a one day astigmatism contact lens in the other eye. Sound complicated? It works great for me! There are some fantastic contact lenses out there today to help with those approaching 40 that suffer from eyestrain at near.
