An estimated 90 million Americans either already have Presbyopia or will develop it by 2014. Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process that gradually progresses as the ciliary muscles in the eye lose flexibility. These muscles bend and straighten the lens so that the eye can focus. As the eye’s focusing ability declines, usually around age 40, patients start to experience difficulty reading and focusing on close up objects. Many people notice this when “their arms get too short” to read fine print. The short-term treatment for most people is reading glasses.
Presbyopia is not the only age-related change in vision. Many people in their 50s and 60s also develop cataracts. Dr. Christenbury can correct both cataracts and presbyopia in a single procedure, with TECNIS Symfony IOL. The TECNIS Symfony procedure (is a multifocal lens implant that corrects your near, intermediate and distance vision, eliminating the need for glasses or contacts. With TECNIS Symfony, you will not have to worry about cataract surgery in the future.
Lens replacement surgery has been around for more than 30 years, and Dr. Christenbury has more than 20 years of lens replacement experience. He has done over 8,000 multifocal lens surgeries since he first began performing the procedure in 2005.
If you are looking to combat cataracts and presbyopia, look into Cataract with TECNIS. And free yourself from the hassle of glasses and contacts.
