With the increase of age to around 40 years, the Lens of the eye loses its normal elasticity and cannot adapt to focus on near objects. Normally, the Lens convexity increases to focus on near objects which is called Accommodation. The accommodation weakens as the age reaches around 40 years and the person cannot see near objects. This is called Presbyopia which is one of the common problems of the eye.
Presbyopia occurs in almost all people, except in those with distant vision dimness having a minus number (near-sighted persons). They may develop low-level Presbyopia or may not develop Presbyopia at all. Persons with distant vision dimness having a plus number (far-sighted persons) could develop Presbyopia earlier than other people.
Signs and Symptoms: The person will face problems seeing near objects or reading. Other symptoms are eye tiredness, headache, dizziness when reading or working on the computer, and needing more light while reading.
Treatment: Though there is no treatment to bring eyes back to a normal state, determining eye number and using eyeglasses can correct near vision and solve patient issues.
