What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related vision condition that causes near objects to appear blurry. It typically starts in a person’s 40’s, when the lens of the eye begins to stiffen and lose flexibility. This makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects.

Presbyopia can significantly impact your quality of life. Regular daily activities like reading books, instruction manuals and food labels, scrolling through your phone, threading a needle and other close-up tasks can become daunting.

The good news is, with the help of Vision Care Bellevue, this common vision condition can be effectively managed, so you won’t have to compromise on your quality of life.

Ritz Carlton Service Level! The staff are very professional and nice. Dr. Wendy is super professiona... l, highly trained with extensive knowledge, and will give you all the time to explain everything to the customer. They also have a good variety of frames. Pros: Very clean, good parking spots, professional staff, high-end fast service. Cons: I honestly don't have any!

Been coming here for 3 years, never left anything but highly satisfied. Dr. Wendy is extremely patie... nt and happy to answer questions, eye exams are quick and efficient, all staff members are super sweet. They are transparent about costs, a refreshing departure from most of the medical industry. I don't even live in Bellevue anymore but don't have the heart to find anyone closer, y'all rock!

Amazing, been coming here for years!

Optometrist and optician who provided service for me today were very welcoming, knowledgeable, and h... elpful. The optician (sorry, forgot her name!) went above and beyond to help me fix my sunglasses. Unlike many other clinics I've been to, they were not pushy and did not try to sell me something I did not need. I would highly recommend this clinic.

Very friendly staff and Dr. Hoang is great!

Highly recommend them! Dr. Huang listens to my need, and open to adjustment! My prescription is str... ong, and hard to fit, but very happy with the result! I got both contact lens and frame glasses with them. With the contact lens they fit me, I'm able to wear contact lens for the whole day and almost every day. Previously, I had to take a break. Now I can take off the contacts when I'm about to sleep, and put them in when I wake up. I also like the frame glass from them. The assistant help me to pick frames. The new frame sits so well on my asian face, and doesn't touch my cheeks at all. Very happy!

Amazing doctor and staff 🙂

Literally the best customer service I've ever gotten anywhere. From the appointment scheduling to wh... en I picked up my glasses, everyone who works here have been kind and helpful. The eye exam itself was the most thorough exam I've ever gotten. Dr Hoang, Nikki and Luba were very patient and welcoming. Nikki explained my insurance coverage line by line, going over all the alternative options. When I was picking frames, she even collected all the frames that suited what I was looking for and put them all on the table for me to try on. She also tweaked the frames that I was interested in so that I'd know accurately how they fit before making a decision. The glasses took about ~2 weeks to come in. When I picked it up this morning, Luba took the time to fix my glasses over and over until they were comfortable and not falling off. She was patient and kind, didn't rush the process or made me feel like I was bothering her (this is true for the everyone here). Can't recommend this place enough. Great service, great exam, great glasses.

Great place for an eye exam. They offer a great selection of frames too. Dr. Huang was very informat... ive and explained my overall eye health and hygiene tips to prep me for LASIK. I would highly recommend!

Excellent service as always. Will continue with my eye care, the staff from the front to the back al... ways helpful and thorough.

I'm so glad I found Vision Plus Bellevue years ago. Dr Huang and her staff are excellent, take such... good care of me, the office is run smoothly and professionally, and they manage insurance without any effort from me! 5 stars!

I am an optometrist myself and I was greatly impressed by Vision Plus Bellevue and its entire team. ... Dr. Huang is a skilled optometrist with great bedside manners. Nikki is a personable optical assistant who is always on top of things. I think one of the reasons why Vision Plus Bellevue is so well run is because of its office manager, Luba. She is a proficient optician who demonstrates patience and exceptional quality of care. Overall, I highly recommend this optical.

Nikki is awesome! Everyone is. Nikki especially is so patient and helps me pick the best designs, su... per communicative, and very professional. I have been seeing them for 2 years now and they will be my permanent people!

We have been going to Vision Plus Bellevue since we moved here last summer. The staff is amazing and... always accommodating to help us. I have a 10 year old that constantly needs help With his glasses and the staff is always ready to help and in a good mood. I also just took my 5 year old for a Well check up and Dr. Wendy is AMAZING She was very patient, explaining step by step on what needed to be done! I couldn’t be happier we are clients of this place! Highly recommended!

I was seen at this fantastic practice this week for the first time. I will be a regular patient goin... g forward! They embody everything my prior provider WASN’T… they are incredibly sharp, professional and kind. Dr. super thorough, office staff very supportive. They’re good about getting you in sooner than later in this crazy mess, too. Definitely recommend!
- Jul. 07, 2021
All of stuffs are so friendly and very knowledgable. And the precription and lens fit me perfectly. ... I would not go elsewhere if they keep it up.

This is my second visit to Vision Plus Bellevue and honestly can’t recommend them enough! Nicole o... n the front desk is super friendly and detail oriented - she checked all insurance information and provided the best option for both my husband and me. Dr. Wendy Huang is super knowledgeable and thorough. She explained every little detail in a very relatable way and has great, modern equipment. They have a very good frame selection and I was actually a bit disappointed to hear that I can keep my current pair of glasses, which I bought from them two years ago.

Presbyopia Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What is presbyopia treatment?

Presbyopia treatment corrects age-related farsightedness to enable you to see close-up objects, such as books and electronic screens more clearly. Treatments include:

  • Eyeglasses
  • Contact lenses
  • Laser surgery
  • Lens implants
Can presbyopia be cured?

Currently, there is no cure. The good news is that our optometrists can recommend a variety of treatment options to help you see your best, from near to far.

How do I know if I have presbyopia?

If you’re over 40 and struggle with any of the following, you may have presbyopia.

  • Holding a book or a screen at arm’s length to see it more clearly
  • Needing larger print or font size to read
  • Blurry vision while reading
  • Difficulty reading in dim light
  • Eye strain and headaches when focusing on near objects

If you have one or more of these signs, schedule an eye exam and ask us about glasses, contact lenses, or other presbyopia treatment options.

Are bifocals right for me?

If it’s hard for you to read and to see things at a distance, bifocals may be your perfect solution. With bifocals, you can get two prescriptions in one. One corrects farsightedness and the other corrects nearsightedness. We offer several different types of bifocal lenses to suit your personal preference.
