What is presbyopia?

Eyes After 40

As we get older, Presbyopia becomes more prevalent, usually developing around age 40. The eye’s soft and flexible crystalline lens hardens over time, making it difficult for the eye to focus light onto the retina and see objects clearly up close.

Presbyopia Affects Everyone

Presbyopia eventually affects everyone, no matter how good your vision was when you were younger. It is not considered a serious condition, or a cause of blindness. Presbyopia can be easily treated with corrective lenses.
