What is Presbyopia?


Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eye's ability to focus on nearby objects. It usually becomes noticeable in your early to mid-40s and continues to worsen until around age 65. The signs and symptoms that you might notice after age 40 are a tendency to hold reading material farther away to make the letters clearer, blurred vision at normal reading distance, and eyestrain or headaches after reading or doing close-up work. Consult an eye specialist if you have a sudden loss of vision in one eye with or without eye pain, experience sudden hazy or blurred vision, see flashes of light, black spots or halos around lights, or have double vision.
