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 CustomEyes - Lee's Summit, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

CustomEyes has the best opticians and the best selection of contacts/glasses available and “in sty... le”. I’m always pleased with my visits, the doctors are always fast, friendly and very helpful. They got newer inventory for glasses such as Tiffany and co, Gucci and more. The girls who help with purchasing glasses and contacts are always super friendly/helpful as well and explain everything such as insurance/and lenses options greatly. Definitely happy with my new Tiffany and co prescription glasses! I can’t wait to pick them up.

Absolutely the best staff and crew, companionate, attentive, empathetic. These guys were very profes... sional, they didn’t treat me any differently than anyone else. The other offices I visited definitely did not exhibit or display that same love. Very grateful for Dr. Drake and his team. Absolutely the best

I am from Colorado, and in Missouri taking care of my elderly parents. I had an emergency in January... and on a Saturday. I called CustomEyes, they were one of the very few clinics open on a Saturday. They were very friendly, and able to squeeze me into the schedule. I found myself staying in Missouri, and possibly relocating here. I've been due for an eye exam, so I gave CustomEyes a call because I was so impressed and comfortable at my original appointment. I saw Dr. A. Genilo, both times and everyone, from her, check in, techs, optical, and check out, was friendly and professional. I would highly recommend this office to anyone. I feel very comfortable saying, I have found my new eye care clinic and will definitely return. Thank you to everyone at CustomEyes!

The doctor and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It's one of the cleanest places I've been ... to. Everyone was masked and washed hands before touching anyone. I felt very safe. The exam was thorough and I didn't feel rushed to choose new frames. They went out of their way checking my insurance and making sure I got the best price. I actually paid half here what I paid at the "discount" place.

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.
