More about Presbyopia
First and foremost, you’re not alone and this happens to everybody – as you age, your up-close vision begins to deteriorate. Fine text becomes blurry, and you find yourself holding books and newspapers farther and farther away just to be able to see. You, like millions of others, need reading glasses.
As people age, the normal elasticity of the lens in our eye is lost and without this flexibility the eye has trouble focusing clearly, this can be compounded in dim light conditions. The condition is referred to as Presbyopia and is a vision condition in which the focusing power of the eye is gradually lost. Presbyopia may seem to occur suddenly, but the actual loss of flexibility takes place over a number of years.
Presbyopia usually becomes most noticeable in the mid-forties and is yet again one of those wonderful things we can look forward to as we age. It is not a disease and it cannot be prevented. Some signs of Presbyopia include having to hold reading materials at arm’s length to read, blurred vision in dim light at normal reading distance, and eye fatigue along with headaches when doing normal day to day activities. Presbyopia is not the same as farsightedness which relates to a less than perfect shape and curve of the eye, which is usually an inherited trait.
