In the past, presbyopia or lao hua was basically treated with close vision using various optical aids such as reading glasses, magnifying lenses and monocles in Singapore and the rest of the world. Patients of presbyopia had a very hard time, and were often found wearing and removing their reading glasses in order to read material written in a small font or objects in close range, and often lost them since their long distance vision was affected if they continued to wear them.

Later, Benjamin Franklin developed a process which involved the fusion of distance lens with lens used in read glasses which gave birth to the bifocals which have today, and which have also been through some modification resulting in the development of trifocals. These reading glasses were definitely a good omen for patients of presbyopia since they were saved from the hassle of removing and losing their glasses altogether.

However, the problem with these glasses was that you are only allowed correct vision of objects located a particular distance, and therefore, your vision scope gets limited. Presbyopia patients would have to learn to rotate their eyes downwards in order to enable them to read. Furthermore, all these issues may also result in various other medical conditions which affect your eyes. Fortunately, we have several treatments available for treating presbyopia patients in Singapore at medical clinics, and these treatments can be effectively accessed by residents too.

You can start by mixing rose water with one part lime juice and keeping them in a bottle, and use this solution as eye drops. While this might not sound like a very good idea, but the fact of the case is that it happens to be one of the most effective natural treatments available for lao hua. Presbyopia is indeed a very common problem in Singapore, and before you can actually go for the treatment, it is necessary that you understand the causes of this condition and why it worsens.

A natural preventive measure against lao hua with long term positive implications on the health of your eyes is to include a diet which contains more Vitamin A and C in order to ensure that you are able to delay and control the development of cataract and presbyopia into the future. You should include dark green leafy vegetables, carrots, mangoes, papayas and peaches in your diet.
All of these fruits and vegetables are easily available in Singapore. Dry fruits such as almonds and walnuts happen to be a great way to treat and prevent your eyes from weakening, and you should have them as snacks on a regular basis. Presbyopia happens to be a medical condition which should be taken very seriously, and by making certain healthy changes in your lifestyle, you would be able to prevent the health of your eyes from further deterioration.
