Presbyopia Disease Understanding

Presbyopia is the gradual loss of near-focusing ability that occurs with age. Most people begin to notice the effects of presbyopia sometime after age 40. This typically comes on between the ages of 40 and 60 as the lenses of the eyes naturally lose elasticity due to the aging process. Presbyopia can be classified by type, including incipient presbyopia, functional presbyopia, absolute presbyopia, premature presbyopia, and nocturnal presbyopia. Age is the major risk factor for the development of presbyopia. However, the condition may occur prematurely due to factors such as trauma, systemic disease, cardiovascular disease, or a drug side effect.


Initial symptoms may be difficulties with prolonged close-up work with tiring (eye strain) of the eyes. This may be worse in dim light. Other common symptoms are delays in focusing at near or distance, ocular discomfort, headache, asthenopia, squinting, fatigue or drowsiness from near work, increased working distance, need for brighter light for reading, and diplopia. The diagnosis is typically based on the medical history to determine the extent of the vision problem, which may show a medication or systemic diseases and disorders that have ocular manifestations. Current clinical management of presbyopia includes off-label treatment using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), parasympathetic agonists, miotic agents, or some other tempering agents. The most commonly used agents are Pilocarpine, Carbachol, Aceclidine, Brimonidine, Nepafenac, etc.


Presbyopia Diagnosis

A basic and comprehensive examination of the eye with different tests is necessary to diagnose presbyopia. The ophthalmologist examines the retina and conducts muscle integrity, refraction, slit-lamp, visual field, and visual acuity tests. These will help ascertain the condition. Eye drops used during this process to dilate the pupils will cause patients to experience increased sensitivity to light in the few hours following the examinations.


With the help of an ophthalmoscope, the specialist can evaluate the retina, optic disk, and choroid (i.e., a layer of blood vessels responsible for providing nourishment to the retina). A muscle integrity test is done with a moving object, and the ability to follow this object is evaluated. Refractive tests assess how well light waves are bent as they go through the cornea and the lens, and the results of these tests help determine which lens prescription will be needed.
