Presbyopia normally starts affecting people in their early 40’s, or in some cases, even earlier. It is a consequence of the natural ageing process, when the focusing lens inside the eye doesn’t adapt as quickly, easily or effectively as it used to.

This causes people to find close work harder; leading to blurry vision, eye strain, headaches, and often moving reading material further away to make it easier to see.

There are many ways to help the symptoms of presbyopia, ranging from simple reading glasses to anti-fatigue lenses, office lenses, progressives (multifocals) or bifocals.

The best thing to do is to speak to your optometrist about your visual needs to get the best solution for you.
