Presbyopia

Presbyopia is an age-related condition that affects almost everyone. As you get older, you may find it harder to focus up close, especially in low light.

What causes presbyopia?
As you approach middle age, the lens of your eye can lose its elasticity and become less flexible. Light from near objects is then focused behind your retina instead of on it, which can result in blurred vision.

What are the symptoms of presbyopia?

Presbyopia makes it harder to focus on near objects and to adjust your focus quickly on objects at different distances. This can affect your vision for everyday activities such as reading print. The print may be blurred up close and you may find yourself holding books, magazines and menus at a distance to see the print more clearly.

Without vision correction, presbyopia can lead to headaches and eye fatigue.

How can presbyopia be corrected?

Most people with presbyopia can correct their vision with multifocal glasses or contact lenses.

Another approach to presbyopia is monovision, whereby one eye has a contact lens to see up close while the other eye has a lens to see far away. Depending on your distance vision, a single lens may be all you need.
