The human body is an extremely precise and complex mechanism. In our daily life, we use a variety of tools — at home, in the garden, or at work. Over time, these tools may wear out, until one day we find they no longer work as well as when we began using them.
Our eyes are just another tool — one that allows us to see the world, change it, and observe the effects of this change. And just like all other tools, they tend to lose their initial power and efficiency over time.

Progressive glasses are the recommended solution for presbyopia.

Yes. With progressive glasses, you don't need to use any other glasses interchangeably. You can use one pair of glasses at work, while driving, reading and watching TV.
Prices start from several hundred zlotys. Their final value depends on the type of selected glasses, material, selected frame and assembly costs.
The Polish “Presbyopia 21” Club was established in April 2016 in Poznań, Poland, by Professor Andrzej Grzybowski.

The club brings together Polish and international ophthalmology practitioners and professors interested in modern methods for presbyopia correction.
