Aging Eyes

Presbyopia is a vision condition in which the crystalline lens of your eye loses its flexibility, which makes it difficult for you to focus on close objects.

Presbyopia is the natural part of the aging process of the eye and usually becomes noticeable in the early to mid-40s.

Signs of “aging eyes” include blurred vision, holding reading materials at arm’s length, eye fatigue, and headaches. Presbyopia cannot be prevented, but bifocals, reading glasses, trifocals, or contact lenses may be prescribed to help compensate for the aging eye.
