We all know that as we age, our bodies start to show signs of wear and tear. But did you know that this also applies to your eyes? As we get older, our eyesight naturally begins to deteriorate. This happens because of a build-up of protein in the lens of the eye, which eventually leads to the formation of cataracts. But can you stop your eyes from ageing? The first thing you\u2019ll notice as you age is that it becomes more challenging to focus on close objects. This is because the lenses in your eyes become less elastic, making it difficult for them to change shape and focus on near objects. Ageing eyes are commonly referred to as presbyopia, affecting almost everyone over the age of 40. If left untreated, presbyopia can lead to cataracts. Whilst there isn\u2019t much you can do to stop your eyes from ageing, you can feel younger by saying goodbye to glasses and contacts for good! Lens replacement surgery Lens replacement surgery is a type of refractive surgery that involves removing your eye\u2019s natural lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. The artificial lens is called an intraocular lens, or IOL. There are two types of IOLs: monofocal and multifocal. Monofocal IOLs correct for either nearsightedness or farsightedness, while multifocal IOLs correct for both. Lens replacement surgery has many benefits, including improved vision, reduced dependence on glasses or contact lenses, and a decreased risk of developing cataracts later in life. In addition, this type of surgery can help you feel younger by giving you the gift of better vision. After all, poor vision can make even the simplest tasks seem daunting, and it can take a toll on your mental and emotional health. But with clear vision, you\u2019ll be able to enjoy all the activities you love without worrying about your vision holding you back.
