Atlanta LASIK Surgeon Interviewed About Presbyopia on Atlanta Vision Institute's Blog
Date:3/25/2013

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 25, 2013

Dr. Farooq Ashraf of the Atlanta Vision Institute was interviewed Monday on the vision institute’s blog about what presbyopia is and how it can be treated. Ashraf decided to hold this interview, in which he discusses the specifics of the eye condition, after having discussed monovision LASIK as a treatment for the condition earlier in the month. Following the blog, he received many questions from his patients about what presbyopia is.

“Presbyopia is really just a term used to refer to the decreased ability to focus on near objects that comes with age. It actually begins when we are born, but does not become noticeable until between the ages of forty and fifty,” said the ophthalmologist and LASIK surgeon in his interview Monday. “We often correct this change in vision with monovision contact lenses or monovision LASIK surgery.” More information about these treatments can be found on the Atlanta Vision Institute’s blog, at http://www.atlanta2020.com/blog2/.

Presbyopia is the change in vision that occurs in adults at or around the age of forty that causes difficulty in reading and focusing on close objects. This condition can be corrected with reading glasses, bifocals, progressive lenses and now monovision LASIK surgery. The exact cause of presbyopia is unknown, but it is widely believed that the vision loss associated with the condition is caused by a loss of elasticity of the crystalline lenses, changes in the lenses’ curvature or weakness of the ciliary muscles in the eyes. Symptoms of presbyopia include difficulty reading fine print, eyestrain when reading and momentarily blurred vision during the transition between viewing something up-close and then focusing at a distance.

Dr. Ashraf is the founder of the Atlanta Vision Institute and a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in corneal and refractive surgery, as well as other treatments for astigmatism, glaucoma, cataracts and other eye conditions. He obtained his advanced training in ocular surgery Johns Hopkins University and has performed over 40,000 LASIK procedures. He has practices in both Atlanta and Dubai.
