Your eye doctor can diagnose presbyopia as part of a comprehensive eye examination. In addition to checking for other eye problems, he or she will determine your degree of presbyopia by using a standard vision test.
Your doctor will use a phoropter, an instrument that the measures the amount of refractive error you have and helps determine the proper prescription to correct it. You will try out several corrective prescriptions to determine which one will offer the best presbyopia correction for you. He or she can also discuss presbyopia surgery as another method for treating your presbyopia symptoms.
