Presbyopia is the age-related loss of accommodation that is commonly seen in people over 40 years old. Presbyopia occurs because the lens loses its elasticity and the ability to focus on near objects. What are the options for treating presbyopia? There are now numerous treatments, including spectacles or contact lenses, undergoing corneal refractive surgery, or implantation of multifocal intraocular lenses. Spectacles with bifocal or progressive lenses represent the most common method employed to correct presbyopia.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views.
