Presbyopia

Presbyopia is the normal loss of near focusing ability that occurs with age. Most people begin to notice the effects of presbyopia sometime after age 40, when they start having trouble seeing small print clearly — including text messages on their phone. If you have presbyopia, what are your options? Progressive lenses or readers are one way to address the vision problem, multifocal contact lenses are another method, and some vision surgeries also correct for presbyopia.
