Better Reading Without Reading Glasses
Presbyopia is a condition associated with aging of the eye that results in progressively worsening ability to focus clearly on close objects.
Presbyopia occurs as a result of physiological changes in the lens, which influence the flexibility of the ciliary muscle (accommodation). As aging progresses, irreversible changes in the amplitude of accommodation occur and result in blurred vision. These changes start to occur around the age of 40 or later.

Symptoms of presbyopia include eye strain, also known as asthenopia, fatigue, pain in or around the eyes, headache, blurred vision, occasional double vision. These can often occur after reading, computer work, or other close tasks.
Read Without Reading Glasses
The clinician will notice a decrease in the clarity of vision in the best line the patient can reach on the eye chart for reading.
There are various ways to treat presbyopia. Reading glasses, move the focus of the image to the retina, which allows for clear reading. When a patient is near sighted, he will need two pairs of glasses or multifocals. Multifocals are available in contact lenses as well. Monovision, is a method prescribing contact lenses where each eye has a different focus, one eye for close vision and the other for distance. The disadvantage of monovision is a decrease in depth perception.
Revitalvision is a method which improves clarity and visual acuity in the first stages of presbyopia. RevitalVision eye exercises activate the vision area of the brain, and are designed according to the needs of each individual. Based on specific stimulation which maximizes the efficiency of the brain, RevitalVision postpones the need of wearing reading glasses for approximately 4 to 5 years. The average improvement is 2 lines in the reading chart making reading glasses unnecessary. These exercises are practiced at home in front of the computer, under the supervision of an optometrist or ophthalmologist, and last approximately 30 minutes.
