Presbyopia is a natural part of the human aging process. It’s the gradual loss of accommodation of the eye as one ages, which results in the inability to focus clearly on nearby objects. Common symptoms include difficulty reading small print, especially in low light conditions; eyestrain and headaches after close-up work or reading.
Generally speaking, presbyopia becomes noticeable from early or mid-40s and progressively to worsen until around age 65.
The treatment is usually with eye glasses. Off-the-shelf reading glasses are also common options.
