Accommodation training for presbyopia. Report 3. Improvement of presbyopia

Accommodation training for presbyopia. Report 3. Improvement of presbyopia

Rinsho Ganka 50(7): 1401-1404

We performed accommodation training on 20 presbyopes for two months or longer. The subjects were aged 42 to 49 years. We evaluated their state of refraction, amplitude of accommodation and symptoms of presbyopia before and two months after training. After training, the state of refraction remained unchanged and the average amplitude of accommodation increased significantly when compared with controls. Subjective symptoms of presbyopia improved in 15 cases. These findings show the efficacy of this training in early presbyopes before they start using reading glasses.
