Presbyopia is a condition where the eyes gradually lose the ability to see things clearly up close. It is a normal part of aging. The muscles around the lens inside your eye become more rigid, thus making it more difficult for close-up tasks.

Here are some things to watch out for!

  1. Your arms feel like they are not long enough to let you read that book

  2. The seasons are changing or does something else explain the headaches and eyestrain after reading or doing close up work?
  3. You may be working too hard but is that really why you are tired after working on the computer?
  4. Unless your phone is broken, there is another explanation for why you can’t read the texts so well anymore.
  5. Did somebody change the lightbulbs? Suddenly they are too dim for reading or playing on devices.
  6. Getting wrinkles? Squinting to read will give you some!
  7. There’s no cloud cover so why are things so blurry?
  8. And, finally, you wish the increasingly hard-to-read dials on the dash were under warranty.

There is no way to stop or reverse the normal aging process that causes presbyopia. However, it can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. We can help you with these visual needs at Insight Vision Care.
