What is presbyopia? According to allaboutvision.com, presbyopia is a condition that is “believed to stem from a gradual thickening and loss of flexibility of the natural lens inside your eye.” This is caused by the natural ageing process and the breakdown of elasticity in the eye, making it difficult to focus on faraway objects.

So how do we fix the situation? There are a couple different options to keep your sight sharp and arms. Bifocals and reading glasses are two popular options. Bifocals are usually worn all day while reading glasses are typically taken on and off .
