Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a natural, often annoying part of aging, in which you lose your ability to focus on objects near to you.

Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eyes’ ability to focus on nearby objects. Presbyopia usually becomes noticeable in your early to mid-40s and continues to worsen until around age 60.
You may become aware of presbyopia when you start holding books and newspapers at arm’s length to be able to read them. If you’re nearsighted, you might temporarily manage presbyopia by reading without your glasses.

Symptoms

The symptoms of presbyopia, like hyperopia, are blurred vision, primarily at near ranges. Presbyopia develops gradually, over years, usually beginning in the late 30s or early 40s. You may first notice these signs and symptoms:

A tendency to hold reading material farther away to make the letters clearer
Blurred vision at normal reading distance
Eyestrain or headaches after reading or doing close work

A basic eye exam can confirm presbyopia.

Treatment

This condition can be treated with glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery (i.e. LASIK).
