If you are over the age of 40, you’ve probably noticed your vision is changing. And not for the better! Maybe you have trouble reading the text on your phone, restaurant menus, food labels or even your book or tablet when you never had any trouble before. This all too common condition is called Presbyopia or Over 40 Vision. And you can’t escape it – even if you’ve never had vision issues before.

This age-related vision condition reduces the ability of the eye to focus on near objects. It occurs when the crystalline lens inside your eye slowly loses its flexibility, making it difficult to focus up close.

Diminished reading vision cannot be prevented with diet or lifestyle changes. Since it is age-related, we can all look forward to dealing with it at some stage.


Are you tired of fumbling around for your reading glasses every time you want to read a menu or send a text? If you are over the age of 40 and are beginning to struggle with your near vision, you now have more options than ever to correct your reading vision at Mann Eye Institute!

Mann Eye Institute is here with a range of advanced vision correction options tailored just for you. Our highly skilled team is ready to guide you through the latest advancements in near vision correction. From advanced LASIK techniques to multifocal lens options, Mann Eye has the solutions to help you see clearly and comfortably at any distance.

Laser Procedures

Blended LASIK is one of the most effective vision correction treatments we offer patients over 40. This customized laser eye surgery can allow you to have greater visual freedom.

For LASIK, the dominant eye receives full-distance vision correction via wavefront-optimized LASIK to resolve nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The non-dominant eye receives treatment targeting slightly reduced distance vision but excellent near vision without glasses.

The brain blends the difference between each eye, allowing good vision at all ranges. Blended LASIK offers safe, effective presbyopia and distance vision correction for patients over 40.

Refractive Lens Exchange

With Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE), sometimes called Clear Lens Exchange, the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens to improve vision. This is done in a comfortable, outpatient setting. Depending on the Active Life Lens you choose, refractive lens exchange could effectively reduce your daily dependency on glasses, contacts and even reading glasses.  Because the lens in your eye is replaced with an artificial lens to improve vision, Refractive Lens Exchange corrects your vision issue and it removes the possibility of cataracts in the future. With a variety of Active Life Lenses to choose from, we can customize each procedure to your individual vision goals and lifestyle.


If you’ve lost the crisp, clear vision you enjoyed in your younger days, you may be tempted to think you’ll spend the rest of your days dependent on reading glasses to see things like menus, books, food labels, your phone texts and even the remote. Well, think again! Introducing the first FDA-approved prescription eye drop that improves age-related blurry near vision (presbyopia) in adults, called Vuity. Vuity prescription eye drops are a non-surgical treatment option designed to be applied once a day at home in each eye.

Vuity works by reducing your pupil size, contracting certain muscles in the eye so you can see up close. In studies, Vuity improved near vision in patients without compromising their distance vision – without the need for readers.

What our
patients say

"I had blended LASIK done at 45 and it was the best decision I ever made. I have perfect distance vision now and can read without readers. I don't miss fumbling for my glasses one bit. I'd recommend it to anyone over 40 struggling with their vision."

- Maria S., age 47

"In my 40s, I hated having to switch between glasses to see far and reading glasses to see near. Refractive lens exchange surgery gave me clear vision - I can now see while driving and can read a menu without squinting. It's so freeing to not deal with glasses."

- James T., age 43

"I decided to use Vuity and I regret not doing it sooner. I see perfectly fine at a distance and now I can see while reading, too. I wish I would have had Vuity years ago!"

- Jennifer L., age 45
