Presbyopia is a gradual loss of the eye's ability to focus on nearby objects in people over the age of 40. It is an unavoidable, age-related condition that can interfere in everyday tasks like reading, working on computer, or using your phone. Even if you never had a vision problem before, presbyopia is inevitable. This condition is also a significant and emotional event because it's a sign that you’re aging, which is something that's impossible to ignore or hide. Even nearsighted people will notice that their near vision blurs when they wear their usual eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct distance vision.

The good news is that presbyopia can be easily diagnosed and there are a number of treatment options available to help restore near vision.
