Presbyopia also called age-related farsightedness is a gradual, age-related loss of the eyes’ ability to focus actively on nearby objects.
Farsightedness usually becomes noticeable in the early- to mid-40s and worsens until around the age of 65.
Symptoms include a need to hold reading material at arm’s length to make letters clearer, blurred vision at normal reading distance, and eye strain after reading. The condition can be corrected with non-prescription or prescription glasses & contact lenses.
