Presbyopia Definition

Presbyopia is the condition of the eyes in which they gradually lose their ability to focus actively on nearby objects.

Presbyopia Diagnosis

Diagnosis of presbyopia can be confirmed through a basic eye exam performed by an ophthalmologist or optometrist.

Presbyopia Symptoms and Signs

An individual has presbyopia when he or she finds prints to be unclear even at a normal reading distance. He or she may suffer from eyestrain or headaches due to prolonged reading or close work.
