Do I Have Presbyopia?


Presbyopia man with binocularsIn our early to mid 40’s, most all of us start to notice difficulty reading up close.  This is a natural  aging change in the eye called presbyopia.  The crystalline lens inside the eye loses its’  flexibility, which makes focusing up close more difficult.  Some people swear it happens  overnight on their 40th birthday, but it’s actually a gradual change over many years.  Unfortunately, it cannot be prevented, but a comprehensive eye exam by your optometrist can diagnose presbyopia.  The symptoms of blurred vision up close and having to hold reading  materials out at arm’s length can be helped with reading glasses, a bifocal, monovision  contacts, or bifocal contacts.
