Presbyopia refers to an eye condition that the eye slowly loses the ability to focus on objects that are close to them. The condition will affect all people as part of the natural aging process as the lens loses ability to change shape easily.
– Symptoms of presbyopia are more common from age 40, with decreasing ability to read or work up close.
– The hardening of the lens, alongwith loss of flexibility and shape, make the eye lose the ability to focus light directly on the retina.
– The risk factors for presbyopia are age, poor blood flow, farsightedness, diabetes, anemia, and cardiovascular disease.
No cure exists for presbyopia. Depending on your condition and lifestyle, you may be able to choose from corrective lenses, contact lenses, or surgery to correct your vision.
