Women see more problems than men

In recent years, through different studies worldwide, it has been found that women are more prone to eye diseases than men. But what is this?

There are vital and hormonal factors such as pregnancy, menopause or other hormonal changes that make women more prone to eye diseases. Although it is natural that they start much earlier.

There are conditions in childhood that can predispose to having multiple vision problems.

So it can be said that women start with presbyopia a few years earlier than men, starting at about 40 years.

Today, there are technologies such as artificial intelligence that allow ophthalmologists and opticians to provide effective presbyopia solutions with peripheral astigmatism control and 100 payment adjustments.

Various lenses designed with this technology will have a better quality of vision, as all areas of the lens will have better definition and a wider optical area that provides natural vision like never before.

According to artificial intelligence lens performance tests, it proves that 96% of people have improved their vision compared to the previous multifocal; 92% reported better visual comfort; 82% improved their vision at night; and 88% of fitting time for lenses is reduced.

At the same time, women have more cases of macular degeneration, which is one of the main reasons why people over 60 can no longer read or drive.
