Presbyopia is a condition in which the ability of the eyes to focus on close objects becomes gradually impaired. Although it is a natural part of the aging process, presbyopia can be bothersome. Dr. Robert Mack, an eye doctor servicing Hoffman Estates, can help patients with presbyopia. Patients who experience the symptoms of presbyopia, such as blurred vision, eyestrain, and headaches, can consult Dr. Mack or one of his qualified associates about ways of managing this common vision problem. Ophthalmologists can recommend eyeglasses or contact lenses, for example. Some patients may prefer refractive surgery.

To learn more about presbyopia, watch this introductory video and call Mack Eye Center for a consultation. . This video explains how the lens and iris of the eye change with age and why these changes affect a person’s vision.
