Presbyopia Symptoms and Treatments

c/o Get EyeSmart.org

Presbyopia (which literally means "aging eye") is a common type of vision disorder that occurs as you age. It is often referred to as the aging eye condition. Presbyopiaresults in the inability to focus up close, a problem associated with refraction in the eye.

After the age of 40, the lens becomes more rigid. Because the lens can't change shape as easily as it once did, it is more difficult to read at close range. This normal condition is called presbyopia.

You can be diagnosed as part of a comprehensive eye examination and the most appropriate correction and treatment for you depends on your eyes and your lifestyle. View this video for additional information.
