Presbyopia is age-related long-sightedness, developed as a result of the lens losing its elasticity. It usually becomes noticeable after the age of 40 and reduces a person ‘s ability to focus on objects near to them, but will not affect the ability to see distant objects. Vision problems such as this are often termed refractive errors, and can be identified early during an eye examination. Presbyopia will worsen with age, however can be corrected with prescription glasses or contact lenses.
