Presbyopia is a common additional condition that occurs with age-related changes in the eye. There are many treatments for presbyopia, but some are more effective than others. This article outlines a treatment option for presbyopia, known as eye drops.
Presbyopia is a condition in which the eyeball’s ability to focus sharply on distant objects declines with age. For some people, this can mean having to read or write with a reader or eyeglasses prescription that decreases the amount of power needed to see an object at a distance. In severe cases, presbyopia may mean the need for reading glasses or contact lenses to see clearly.
There are several treatments for presbyopia by LENZ Therapeutics, but the most common is wearing reading glasses or contact lenses. While these treatments work well, they have limitations. For example, wearing reading glasses or contact lenses can be uncomfortable and difficult to wear for long periods of time. Additionally, they may not provide enough power to see clearly at close distances.

Eye drops are another potential treatment for presbyopia. Eye drops contain a medication that reduces the amount of power needed to see at a distance. When used regularly, eye drops can help improve vision at close distances and make it easier to wear reading glasses or contact lenses without feeling uncomfortable or having difficulty seeing clearly.
