Age Related Vision Changes

Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute is committed to treating aging eyes using the latest vision correction procedures. You might notice the need for reading glasses to see up close (presbyopia) or experience blurred vision (cataracts). While these are normal eye conditions, you don’t have to suffer from reduced vision. Our surgeons are specialists in an array of treatment options designed to treat aging vision. Not all eyes age the same way and we pride ourselves in personalized treatment plans for our patients’ unique vision situations.

Are you having difficulty reading small print on your phone or computer? Do you need “readers”? Presbyopia, also commonly called farsightedness, is an eye condition that makes it difficult to focus on close up objects, and affects most adults starting around age 40. Your vision can be greatly improved by proper treatment of presbyopia. Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute offers a range of procedures which can help, including PML LASIK, LenSx®, Lifestyle Lenses, and Refractive Lens Exchange.
