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 Alvernon Optical - Campbell, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

I went to the Campbell location for a prescription checkup and am very happy with my experience. Aft... er my appointment with Dr. Tetrault, who was very kind, I was shown some frame options while my current pair were adjusted and cleaned. The options were reasonably priced but I was not pressured to buy anything like I have been at other optical offices. I was able to get a copy of my updated prescription and paid about $70 for an out-of-pocket/uninsured standard eye appointment (no contacts). If you need an easy eye appointment, especially a standard yearly update, I recommend Alvernon Optical!

Dr Tetrault provides excellent care and has a very comforting and warm disposition too. I’ve tried... other Ophthalmologists over the years but came back to his office because he provides the best service.
- Sep. 10, 2023
I recently had 2 very disappointing experiences with the place I've been going to since 2016. I wan... ted a second opinion & found that Dr. Tetrault was still practicing! (I used to go to Dr. Tetrault over 15 years ago.) He's just how I remebered; very patient, calm, & took the time to help me understand my eye issues. He's a doctor who actually listens! The staff are very kind, empathetic, & helpful. The optician, Guillermo is very knowledgeable & is skilled in his craft. I'm so glad this place and doctor are still around! Needless to say, I will not be going back to the other place again.

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.
