I have age related presbyopia, ie my lenses are becoming less flexible and my near vision is thus poor. Until this started happening a couple of years ago I had near perfect vision. My optician has also advised me I have very early onset cataracts - which was a bit of a shock but he said that it would be some time before they caused any bother or needed anything doing. I have difficulty with getting glasses to suit as my long distance is only slightly affected but my near vision needs help. Single vision or reading glasses are great for counteracting this but I'm continually having to put them on and take them off as I cant see to walk around with them on but cant read anything without them. I tried varifocals but the lack of lens space given to the near vision bit at the bottom really isnt sufficient to be comfortable. Is there any procedure like Lasik or similar that can help correct this type of vision loss or are laser techniques only suitable for corneal problems. Best advice to everyone - dont get old 😦 it's no fun.
