    Well, yes, you can just suggest your grandmother to have some eye exercises to treat her presbyopia. And generally speaking, as people age, the lenses of their eyes lose flexibility. At this time, it will just make close-up objects appear blurry, and this is named as presbyopia. Of course, people can try some ways to treat it. And exercises can be a good way. For example, you can just cross your eyes and focus on the tip of your nose, and then look at a far-off object and focusing on it. You should remember that it should be repeated in time with your breathing, looking at your nose as you inhale and the far-off object as you exhale. So your grandma may have a try.

    Eyeglasses with bifocal or progressive addition lenses are the most common correction for presbyopia. There are also some eye surgery that are intended for presbyopia. A procedure called conductive keratoplasty, or CK, which uses radio waves to change the surface of the cornea, can also induce monovision, but the effect is not long-lasting. As to the exercises to help presbyopia,palming are believed to be helpful. Besides, there is another available treatment programs based upon exercising the ciliary muscles can be effective.

    A condition that our eyes fail to focus on near objects is called presbyopia, which occurs when we are around the age of 40. I am afraid that your grandpa can not fix the problem just by exercises. Further, the inventor of "See Clearly Method" had been accused of his claims of effective eye exercises for presbyopia. So, corrective lenses can be helpful prescribed by the optician after some eye exams. Bifocals may be necessary, especially when your grandpa also suffers nearsightedness. Well, after careful consideration and necessary consulting practices with the doctor, he can also take the cornea reshaping or synthetic lenses implanting into consideration. In addition, a balancing diet and large-print items can relieve the blurred vision.
