Presbyopia is an extremely common visual disorder, which promotes long sightedness and hinders vision of objects nearby. This occurs due to the stiffening or elongation of lenses and eye muscles due to age, rendering it incapable of focusing properly. Objects which are closer to the field of vision appear blurred and other important symptoms of Presbyopia like inability to read or work on the computer or sew, also emerge. Normally appearing above the age of forty, presbyopia is easily corrigible by corrective lenses and glasses, or even completely eliminated by laser eye surgeries.
HOW IS PRESBYOPIA DIAGNOSED?
Unlike astigmatism, myopia and hypermetropia, Presbyopia is a process completely and solely triggered by old age and loss of muscle flexibility in the eyes.
