What is Presbyopia?
Presbyopia is the most common eye condition in Australia and occurs as part of normal ageing. It is not considered to be an eye disease and symptoms are usually noticeable by age 40–45 and continue to develop until the process stabilises some years later.
With the onset of Presbyopia you will begin to experience blurred near vision when reading, sewing or working at the computer. Even people who are nearsighted will notice that their near vision blurs when they wear their usual eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct distance vision.
