Presbyopia is the result of your body’s natural ageing process that gradually degrades our ability to focus up close. Both men and women will eventually develop presbyopia, typically beginning around the age of 40 and continuing until age 65. .
For the first few decades of your life, the crystalline lens inside the eye is soft and flexes easily. This ability to flex allows you to focus accurately and quickly on the world around you, near or far. The body’s ageing process diminishes your eyes ability to focus as the lens naturally begins to harden and you can expect increased difficulty in reading computer screens and books. .
You will experience a gradual onset of symptoms as you age. They typically present around 40 years old.
Presbyopia is one of easier eye conditions to treat. It certainly doesn’t need be a life sentence of blurry vision.
Corrective surgery will not be a permanent solution to your presbyopia, but it will remove the need to carry around glasses and wear contacts for many years.
