What is Presbyopia?
Presbyopia is a vision disorder where the eye’s crystalline lens loses its ability to flex–or focus on items up close. This rigidity makes focusing on objects up close very difficult.
Beginning around age 10, the natural lens in our eyes begins a very slow process of becoming less and less able to accommodate focus changes. This inability to focus is called Presbyopia. Presbyopia normally does not affect near vision until after age 40 and causes the need for reading glasses or bifocals to see near objects. There is no “cure” for Presbyopia.
As a cataract forms, the lens becomes even less able to accommodate, however most people who develop cataracts have been fully presbyopic for quite some time and have been using readers and bifocals for years.
Symptoms of Presbyopia
- Inability to Focus Up Close
- Blurred Vision at Normal Reading Distance
- Headaches and Eye Fatigue
