If you have trouble reading up close, you may have presbyopia.
Other Presbyopia symptoms include:
- Holding books and magazines farther away
- Headaches or tired eyes with close work or reading
- Slow focusing from near objects to distant objects, a clock on the wall takes time to come into focus after reading
Watch the Presbyopia video
Presbyopia is the loss of the eye’s ability to focus on near objects because of age-related thickening and hardening within the natural lens. Typically, an individual with normal distance vision, without the need for eyeglasses, will begin to experience presbyopia by their mid-40s. It is a myth that eye exercises can overcome presbyopia.
