Do you find yourself having to hold your reading material at arms length in order to see what you are reading clearly? Are you experiencing frequent headaches, eye strain, and fatigue? You may be developing what is known as presbyopia, an extremely common age-related eye condition that tends to develop around the age of 40 in most people, and it causes blurriness when looking at things close-up. It is simply a part of getting older; presbyopia can affect you even if you have never had any visual problems in the past. As you grow older, the lens in your eye changes. It loses some of its elasticity, which makes it difficult for the lens to focus. Presbyopia can easily be lived with the help of some corrective devices, such as contacts, or reading glasses. At our Summerville eye care facility, Dr. James Deavers can help detect presbyopia and offer you options for treatment.
Our Summerville eye care facility is a great resource for not only the diagnosis of presbyopia, but to find the correct contacts or reading glasses to get you seeing clearly again. You might even think of your presbyopia as an opportunity to get a fun, new accessory, like some designer glasses to use for reading. We carry a variety of designer brand glasses; some brands that are popular at our Summerville eye care facility include Ray Ban, Baby Phat, Stuff by Hilary Duff, Oscar de la Renta, and Randy Jackson eyewear, among many others. Our helpful staff members are here to help you no matter what you need, so feel free to stop in and browse our selection, or schedule an appointment to see Dr. Deavers. You may call our office to schedule an appointment, or fill out a contact form on our website. Also rest assured that we are doing our best to accommodate you when it comes to payment. We participate with many different insurance plans, including Davis Vision, United Health Care, Medicare and Medicaid.
