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 Blanco EyeWorks, 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

    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.

Dr. Kip and his staff are beyond reproach! Always pleasant and with the most up to date screening eq... uipment. I moved away from San Antonio 3 years ago and still use them for my glasses and contacts. Great people.

I've been seeing Dr. Kip for over 20 years. He and his staff are always so friendly. I started tak... ing my daughters to get their eyes checked and they took such good care of them. They always make us feel right at home like visiting family. Thanks Kip, Alex and Candy. We love your service!

Impressed by the doctor. I have been wearing glasses since age 4. I have had doctors that did not i... mpress me. This doctor has solutions for aging eyes. He also wears glasses and is older therefore he knows first hand about eye changes. The staff also were very cool 😎.

My family and I have been coming here since the mid 2000’s. We've always been happy customers. We... changed insurance plans a few years ago and unfortunately they weren’t in network. I tried a few places and there was no comparison. I realized very quick how spoiled I had been by the wonderful owners/staff at Blanco Eyeworks. Recently, I was frustrated with wearing the junky glasses I got with my vision benefit. A few months ago I had decided to make an appointment to buy a new pair and just pay for them myself when I thought to check if they were in network. And they were!!! I was SOOOO happy to walk in there and see the familiar faces and knew I was finally back in good hands! Four out of five people in my family got new glasses within a week as well. Dr. Kip knows his stuff & is always friendly and attentive. Alex is the most knowledgeable person I’ve ever encountered in this business. He always knows what will look best on me. I don’t even bother to look at the glasses anymore. I just let him bring me a few to try on. Nine out of ten times I end up getting the first pair he hands me. Same with the rest of my family. Bottom line…Quality glasses, attentive service.

Dr Kip runs one spectacular LOCAL business. The Blanco Eye Works team will be attentive and engaged ... throughout your entire stay. Expect a thorough eval, explanation, and plan from Dr Kip. In case eyewear is on your list, Alex has an outstanding selection. He also has a great eye to help pick out the perfect frames. Thumbs up!!

Service above and beyond! Plus, they’re a locally owned business to boot! Alex is awesome and goes... out of his way to help. My family will be life-long customers as long as they are around!!

My family has been going to Blanco Eyeworks for several years, and we've always had a great experien... ce. I'd highly recommend them!

I'm a huge proponent of supporting local businesses and this place is at the top of my list. I knew ... going into the office that it was time to get serious about my eyesight and pony up to what I really needed and not what my old college budget allowed. I felt right at home here with every staff interaction. The technology at this office is unreal, they have an imaging machine for your eye that looks like it's made by Ferrari. I'm glad to have found an office in my neighborhood I can trust and that treats me like part of the family. It's rare in this day and age to find this type of customer service. I can't thank Dr. Orbeck and his staff enough for all the help. I look forward to doing business with them for a long time to come!

If you ever need some new glasses, or just need to get your eyes checked. Dr. Kip Orbeck is the guy ... to see. Kip and his staff are awesome. They are so friendly and not pushy. Alex does his magic on making sure your glasses look perfect on you. I saw Dr Kip many years ago for some new glasses and later went back for sunglasses. When I was away from San Antonio for awhile I had lost my glasses and went to see another doctor. That doctor was no Kip Orbeck. He didn't really care much about my prescription and his staff was rude. Last year I turned 40 and I noticed my eyesight was changing on reading small letters. I decided I better get them checked. I went to see Dr Orbeck because I knew he would take care of me. He said I'm getting close to needing bifocals but not right now.( I feel old now haha) He never forced me to buy the bifocals until I really need them. Dr Kip Orbeck your awesome and so is your staff. You make it easier to getting my eyes checked. Sorry this so long. (This is the little guy that came in on Saturday)
