Eye care for professional musicians

We use our ears to hear and enjoy music, but if you’re a musician, your eyes are equally important. Your eyes allow you to read clearly, but they also allow you to read music you need or want to play.

A musician’s vision problems can have serious consequences. A number of age-related conditions can affect the eyes and have forced professional musicians into early retirement.

Presbyopia is a condition which affects a person’s ability to focus on closer working distances and this can get in the way of musician’s ability to work and see properly. It is caused by a loss of elasticity of the eye’s crystalline lenses. Presbyopia can mean that while musicians focus on a music stand, they may find difficulty in being able to see the conductor. As a result, it forces many people to try to find some less than effective solutions or retire from playing professionally altogether.
