Presbyopia – Vision after 40
Presbyopia - Vision after 40
If you are in your 40s, you may have noticed that seeing up close is getting more difficult. Reading books and working on computers for long periods becomes harder. This occurs because of presbyopia.
At a young age, the lens inside our eyes has a great deal of flexibility and therefore, focusing power. This ability allows us to see clearly at near distances. When we get to our 40s, the lens inside our eyes loses its ability to change shape and therefore focus on near objects. Many of us adjust the distance at which we hold things.
In order to improve our vision at near, we need to consider an optical correction just as one would for near or far sightedness.
