Presbyopia is a condition associated with aging of the eye that results in progressively worsening ability to focus clearly on close objects.

Symptoms include difficulty reading small print, having to hold reading material farther away, headaches and eyestrain Different people will have different degrees of problems. Other types of vision probelms may exist at the same time as presbyopia. Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process. It is due to hardening of the lens of the eye causing the eye to focus light behind rather than on the retina when looking at close objects.

It is a type of refractive error along with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Treatment is typically with eye glasses. The eyeglasses used have higher focusing power in the lower portion of the lens. Off the shelf reading glasses may be sufficient for some. People over 35 are at risk for developing presbyopia and all people become affected to some degree.
