I can’t see up close- Presbyopia
Presbyopia will affect every person. No one can escape it but, don’t despair just yet. It usually affects people above 40. It is the result of the aging of the lens which makes it more rigid and unable to flex or focus on objects that are up close. As a result, people experience blurred near vision when reading, working at the computer or otherwise doing near work.
Presbyopia cannot be prevented but it can be treated. Almost half of all Americans are age 40 and older. All of these people are experiencing or about to experience presbyopia. Presbyopia is a refractive error and your ophthalmologist can help you find the treatment that best fits your needs.
Symptoms and Signs
In the initial stages, presbyopia forces the individual to hold things further away when reading. The affected individual may also need additional lightning to be able to read. When the person reads for a long period of time, they may feel strain, pain or feel fatigued.

• Eyestrain when reading for long periods
• Blurred near vision
• Difficulty transitioning between viewing distances from close to far
• The feeling that your arms have become "too short" to hold reading material at a comfortable distance
