Having problems with your near vision can be very frustrating. Everyday tasks like reading a text or checking a bill in a coffee shop can become awkward or annoying. The good news is that if you do suffer with near vision problems, Reading Vision Correction might just be the answer.
Here are three telltale signs that the treatment might just be what you’ve been looking for all along.
You have trouble reading fine print clearly
You’ll notice this with newspapers, mobile phone texts, labels on jars, etc. and find yourself holding objects at arm’s length to try to focus clearly on them. It happens to everyone, usually between the ages of 40-65.
You’re over 40 and have near sight problems
Are you aged between 40 and 65? As we get older, we lose our near vision. The technical term for this loss of crispness and clarity of near vision is ‘presbyopia’. Presbyopia, the loss of ability to focus on near objects as the eye ages, happens when the eye’s natural lens loses its flexibility and stiffens with age.
In order to see print clearly, our crystalline lens is squeezed into shape by the ciliary muscles that surround it. This allows the eye to ‘accommodate’; and the lens to change shape so we can read what is on front of us.
It will vary by individual, but once people enter their forties, they may find themselves holding printed material at arm’s length in order to try to see it clearly.
This is because the lens of our eye can no longer change shape easily to ‘accommodate’ near vision, so we compensate for it by moving the object farther away from the eye until we can see it properly. Our arms end up doing the work our eyes should be doing!
You can’t do without your reading glasses
Presbyopia is the reason that reading glasses become necessary, even for people who have excellent distance vision. It’s an inevitable condition, whether people have had previous laser eye surgery or not. People with presbyopia have difficulty reading menus, phones, newspapers, magazines, labels, watches and other objects close-up.

Great experience and great after care. Had 2020 vision within 24 hours with very minimal pain.
Amazing experience , amazing staff, amazing eye sight . I had lens replacement 3 months ago and would highly recommend.
I got my laser eye surgery done on April 20th and couldn’t be happier. I had one hard day of recovery, followed by dry eyes for a small while. Sleeping with the protective goggles is the hardest part, but you’re helped throughout the process by experts. I couldn’t recommend this enough and Optilase were a dream to deal with. Even if you can’t afford the treatment now, you can always talk about a payment plan and get the vision you’ve always wanted.
I could not rate high enough, consultation was extremely informative and the staff were amazing, very friendly and answered all my questions with ease.
I had a wonderful experience in Optilase in Ely Place, the staff were so kind and helpful and made me feel really comfortable. Would absolutely recommend
Couldn't rate Optilase high enough. I had Lens Replacement Surgery. My experience from the first phone call to the procedure itself and the aftercare was fantastic. All of the staff from the call centre to the staff in Carrickmines and the theatre were so helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend .
I had my PRK done on both eyes , and im happy with the result. The post operation pain was extreme but it settled down after 4 days. Now i feel great after 2 weeks post operation no complications what so ever , other than blurry vision now and then, but its improving every day
Got LASIK in Ely Place only yesterday and officially had 20/20 vision just 24 hours later! Cannot recommend Optilase enough from my initial consultation with Aisling in Athlone to my trips to Carrickmines and Ely Place. The staff really look after you from the moment you walk in the door and make you feel so at ease from start to finish - 10 out of 10 experience!
I highly recommend this place, reliable information and care, full professionalism.
LASIK was so easy and pain free. It’s one week post surgery and my eye sight is wonderful. I couldn’t recommend enough.
I no longer need glasses,absolutely life changing.Great aftercare,lovely staff.
I have been wearing glasses for over 20 years. I always hated wearing contact lenses and I got to a time in my life that I needed a change. A friend recommended optilase, I went for the free consultation and the person that did all the exams was really nice and I felt safe and confident enough to go ahead, I was recommended the PRK. I Put on a piece of paper how much I spent and would still spend on glasses for the next 10 years, and the surgery was for sure cheaper than that. My prescription was very high, both eyes, myopia and astigmatism Optilase provided all the information I needed, in clear manner. And they always made clear that there was nothing wrong with my eyes, it was my own choice to go for the surgery. The day of the surgery I was a bit nervous, who wouldn't? But then, from the reception to the surgeon, they were all so nice and welcoming. Hernandez performed the procedure, lovely surgeon, again all information was provided the way it should. I was instructed in what I should and should not do. The actual procedure took less than 15min, I felt nothing, no discomfort or anything. The whole process is very well done by the team, if I remember well around 3 people supporting the surgery plus one other girl providing pos surgery instructions. Right after the procedure I could already see much better than before without glasses! I couldn't believe it, I cried, thanked everyone and left the clinic knowing that I made the best choice. The recovery for PRK is a bit longer, I stayed for 2 full days no phones, or any screens. In the dark. If you have a little one, I would recommend to have someone minding them, as you are very limited in what you can do for the day of and day after surgery. It is hard to open the eyes, the second day after surgery was the toughest, I thought all went wrong as the vision got worst, but again I was advised it could happen. Note that this was my experience and could be different for other people. The 3rd day I felt nothing and could see much better already. Light sensitivity was very high, and still, 6 days after surgery, but nothing that a sun glasses would not help. My vision still blurred, but I need no glasses to see, my eyes feel dry sometimes, but the eye drops provided helps with it and and am very happy with the results already, even knowing it takes a bit longer to fully recover the vision. I'm back to work (screen at 200% to make sure I dont force my eyes too much) and I have had no headaches or anything, which I would have all the time looking at screens for most of my day. I cannot recommend Optilase enough, they are amazing! If you want to do something for your self and want a place you can trust, go for it, choose Optilase. Thanks to the whole team for one of the best things I did for my self!
