Presbyopia reduces the ability to focus on items closer than arm's distance. A natural part of the aging process, it develops as the lenses in our eyes lose elasticity over time. Nearly everyone, even individuals who have enjoyed clear vision their entire lives, can begin to notice that they need to hold labels or other objects farther away to read them clearly. They may also start to experience migraines or eye strain from tasks that never bothered them before. At his practice in Bloomington, IN, R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. and his team can provide a range of options to improve your vision if you have developed age-related presbyopia. Plan a visit to The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, and we can help you identify the best solution for your needs.
How Is Presbyopia Treated?
Using specially designed vision tests, we can determine the most effective course of action for your particular degree of presbyopia. Most patients correct age-related vision impairment with corrective eyeglasses or contacts made with either bifocal or progressive lenses. Bifocals are built with two sections of the lens — one that makes it easier to see things close up and one that makes it easier to see things far away. Progressive lenses function similarly, but they are designed with a gradient rather than a distinct line between sections of the lens. There are also some surgical treatments that can potentially be effective in diminishing presbyopia, including laser surgery. Dr. Grossman is happy to navigate you toward your ideal form of vision management and evaluate whether you could be eligible for particular surgical procedures.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
