Are you experiencing blurred near vision when reading or working on the computer? You could be suffering from Presbyopia (‘Lao Hua’).

What is Presbyopia (Lao Hua)?

Presbyopia (Lao Hua) is an age-related condition in which a person is unable to focus on near objects. Presbyopia (Lao Hua) is an inevitable natural aging process of the eye and usually begins at around 40 years old.

This is an interactive illustration demonstrating how a person's view of the Singapore scenery may be with an increase in the degree of presbyopia.  Please use the mouse, click on the blue arrow and slide it to the right. 


What causes Presbyopia (Lao Hua)?

Presbyopia (Lao Hua) occurs when the natural lens in the eye loses its elasticity and ability to change shape as a person gets older. The loss of elasticity in the lens makes it less able to focus light accurately when looking at near objects.

How do I correct my Presbyopia (Lao Hua)?

Presbyopia (Lao Hua) can be corrected with special spectacle lenses called bifocals to help correct the condition and any other existing refractive errors such as myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness) or astigmatism.
