As people approach the age of 40, they may begin to notice that their near vision is not what it was even a few years ago. Indeed, once you enter your forties and progress into your early forties, you can expect to definitely have changes up close, requiring a spectacle (or contact lens) prescription. (If you are near-sighted to begin with, you can simply remove your glasses at near to solve this near blur, but this is an issue for another article).Presbyopia is a vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close ones do not come into proper focus. Presbyopia is a natural condition normally related to age. Common signs include difficulty in concentrating and maintaining a clear focus on near objects such as books or magazines, eye strain, fatigue and/or headaches after close work. It can easily be corrected by reading glasses or varifocals. Call in at Vision Optique London and we will be able to help you.
