Presbyopia is one of the conditions we develop as we get older. It is characterised by difficulty reading small print close by. It is caused by weakening of the eye’s focussing system. It’s a natural progression, that usually starts in your early 40s.  If you find that you struggle to read small print or thread a needle,  you might be presbyopic. Short sighted people (myopes) usually need to remove their spectacles to read close by. The solution depends on your needs and vision, an eye test will help determine whether you need reading glasses, bifocals or multifocals. Contact lens wearers can also be accommodated. Get your eyes examined so we can give you the best solution for you.
