Sheffield optometrist Alex Gage is delighted to be the first in Sheffield to stock a revolutionary new lens specifically for patients with Presbyopia, also known as age-related long-sightedness, who use computers, tablets and mobile devices.
The new lens, PureVision2 has been developed in response to the growing number of people who spend their days alternating between smart phones, tablets and computers and Alex is proud to be Sheffield’s first stockist at his practices in Crosspool and Woodseats. He said; “Research suggests that smartphone ownership doubled from 2009 to 20111 and the use of tablet devices is forecast to escalate over the next decade2, so it’s not hard to see how adults over 30 spend in excess of 10 hours a day connected to different technologies3, either working, viewing and interacting with screens of various sizes.
“PureVision2 for Presbyopia are multifocal contact lenses that have been designed to improve near and intermediate vision while continuing to provide excellent distance vision and exceptional comfort. We’re looking forward to trialling them with our patients who are looking for clearer near and intermediate vision and may not want to wear reading glasses.”
Presbyopia is a normal part of ageing and not a disease. As you get older, people find it more difficult to focus on and see near objects. The problem can be corrected by contact lenses or reading glasses. Presbyopia is a type of sight problem called a refractive error.
