When You Can’t See Objects Up Close: Presbyopia

Do you hold objects like books, magazines or phones farther away in order to see them? If so, you may have presbyopia. Presbyopia makes it difficult to focus on objects that are close to you. It’s a natural condition that happens when the lens in your eye loses its flexibility with age. Having cataracts and presbyopia at the same time makes objects blurry, especially when they’re up close.

Cataract Surgery Can Free You from Presbyopia

Today’s advanced technology can give you the chance to free yourself from cataracts and the inconvenience of presbyopia, all in one simple surgical procedure.

During cataract surgery, the surgeon replaces your clouded lens with a new lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL). You can choose an IOL, such as the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Multifocal lens, that can correct your presbyopia as well as your cataract — helping you see near, far and everything in between.1
