Article Excerpts about Presbyopia

Presbyopia (prez-bee-OH-pee-uh) is a slow loss of ability to see close objects or small print. It is a normal process that happens over a lifetime. You may not notice any change until after the age of 40. People with presbyopia often hold reading materials at armís length. Some get headaches or "tired eyes" while reading or doing other close work. Presbyopia is often corrected with reading glasses.
