What is presbyopia?

Q:
What is presbyopia?

A:
Presbyopia is that it gets harder to see close up, but you can see things far away just fine. It isn’t a disease. It’s a natural part of the aging process. And it’s easy to correct.

Symptoms

  • You need to hold reading material at arm’s length.
  • Blurred vision at a normal reading distance
  • Headaches or fatigue from doing close work

Diagnosis

Your eye doctor can diagnose presbyopia with a thorough eye exam.

Treatment

There’s no cure for presbyopia. But there are a lot of ways to improve it. Eyeglasses with progressive lenses are the most popular solution for presbyopia for most people. Reading glasses are another choice and they are worn only when needed to see close objects and small print more clearly.
