Presbyopia is a condition where we develop farsightedness due to age. It is characterized by difficulty reading small print up close, and having to hold reading material further away. This condition is a normal part of the ageing process, where the natural lens loses its ability to focus on near objects.

It’s important to have your eyes examined when you get these symptoms, so that a tailor made solution can be found for you. Reading spectacles, multifocals, bifocals or an adjustment of your contact lens prescription are some of the solutions to presbyopia.

Signs that you may be presbyopic include:

  • Increasing difficulty focusing on nearby objects
  • Holding books, newspapers, digital devices and so on at arm’s length to read them properly
  • Frequent headaches and eye fatigue
