What is presbyopia?
Just like a camera, your eye has a lens inside of it that allows you to focus on objects up close. Over time, your lens loses its flexibility, resulting in a gradual decrease in the clarity of your near vision. This is a natural focusing decline that affects everyone at some point in life is known as presbyopia.
For example, if you’re at the beginning stages of presbyopia, you may notice occasional blurry vision up close.
You may also notice that your arms are just not long enough to get the fine print on your phone or medicine bottles in focus. In addition, you may notice your symptoms are worse when you’re tired or in a room with poor lighting conditions.
