Presbyopia is a common aging disorder. Many people, even without wearing glasses, will show presbyopia symptoms once they are over 40.
The need to wear reading glasses can now be corrected with laser blended vision treatment or by progressive multifocal lens implants.
With time, the focusing ability of your eyes weakens.
Being able to read small text worsens and you may need different lenses to focus on near and distant objects.
Generally speaking, people have been wearing glasses or bifocal or progressive lenses to correct this, but some of the most advanced laser treatments, combined with surgery, can today treat presbyopia symptoms.
