Most people begin to notice the effects of presbyopia sometime after age 40 when they start having trouble seeing small print clearly — including text messages on their phone.
When we are born, our lens is soft and flexible. It can focus on things in the distance and adjust to look at things up close.
Over time the lens begins to harden and swell which reduces its ability to adjust. The loss of this focusing ability results in blurred or distorted images when you look at close objects such as reading a book or looking at a tablet.
Presbyopia is not reversible, but there are solutions to this change.
If you have presbyopia, what are your options? Progressive lenses, or readers are one way to address the vision problem, multifocal contact lenses are another method, and some vision surgeries also correct for presbyopia.
