Image of Presbyopia from Optique, opticians in Battersea, LondonPresbyopia is a condition where the eye progressively loose its  ability to focus on near objects. This occurs because the natural lens in the eyes looses its elasticity to accommodate over different lengths – the closer things are the more blurred they become.

It is a natural condition that eventually affects everyone from the age of about 40yrs.

As the condition progresses, reading small print or books will become difficult, unless they are held at arm's length.

 Presbyopia can be easily corrected with simple reading glasses or bifocals or varifocals. It can also be corrected with multifocal contact lenses where you can see well at all distances without needing spectacles.
