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.
Approximately half of the population will have a cataract by age 65. The most common symptoms include blurred vision, double vision, and trouble seeing at night or while driving. Since cataracts can initially have few symptoms, early detection is key to successful treatment.
Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome, or DLS is cause by a gradual loss of the flexibility of the eye’s natural lens. The first signs typically begin after age 40, resulting in a need for reading glasses. Symptoms include yellowing vision, problems with seeing at night, and a need for more light to see while reading.
