    Comic Presbyopia Patient Education

    We will all need reading Spectacles at some stage make shore you get the best for your eyes Progressive spectacle lenses, also called progressive addition lenses (PAL), progressive power lenses, graduated prescription lenses, and vari-focal or multifocal lenses, are corrective lenses used in eyeglasses to correct presbyopia and other disorders of accommodation. They are characterised by a gradient of increasing lens power, added to the wearer’s correction for the other refractive errors. The gradient starts at the wearer’s distance prescription, at the top of the lens and reaches a maximum addition power, or the full reading addition, at the bottom of the lens. The length of the progressive power gradient on the lens surface depends on the design of the lens, with a final addition power between 0.75 and 3.50 dioptres. The addition value prescribed depends on the level of presbyopia of the patient. In general the addition will get stronger as we get older.

    More on Reading Glasses – The eye exercise video is good for your eye movement muscles but won’t improve the focus as the loss of near of near vision is due to reduced elasticity in the Crystaline lens; so good for eye movement but not focus; there are a lot of similar programs promoted for myopia control be careful. If you do decide to purchase ask for at least “A 2 year Money back Garantee” as it will take this long to know if the programe gave you any benefit.
