Presbyopia

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a common age-related vision condition which occurs when the lens of your eye loses its flexibility making it difficult to focus on objects up close. This is the reason that reading glasses become necessary in most people over the age of 40. However, it can occur to people of a younger age, essentially if you find yourself having to bring books, newspapers, and other reading materials close to your face in order to read.
