Presbyopia is a condition which causes the lens of the eye to lose its ability to focus. This can cause difficulty seeing objects up close. Presbyopia is an age related disease and generally occurs in people over the age of 40.
When we are young the lens of the eye is soft and flexible but as we age the lens becomes rigid. As a result, everyday tasks, such as reading become increasingly difficult. It occurs in practically everyone and people with myopia generally experience less problems.
