Age-related farsightedness (Prebyopia)

  • Starting at approximately 40 years old, most people will begin to notice that reading and other near tasks are not as easy as they once were. Focusing up close becomes more difficult. This is a natural part of the aging process as the crystalline lens loses its flexibility gradually over time and you are no longer able to focus up close. Presbyopia generally gets progressively worse until around late 60s, when it usually levels off.
