Everyone develops presbyopia during their life. Most people, whether they have previously worn glasses or not, experience the symptoms of presbyopia in their 40’s. Effectively, the zoom system that allows your eyes to change focus from distant to near objects becomes weaker. Your ability to read small print (e.g. newspapers) diminishes and you require different lenses for focusing on close and distant objects.


Traditionally people have used reading glasses, bifocals or varifocal lenses to correct this, however, some of the more advanced laser systems coupled with surgical expertise can now treat the symptoms of presbyopia.
