Presbyopia is a condition that affects practically everyone in their mid-forties. Symptoms include difficulty seeing fine print, fatigue with reading, and arms that no longer seem long enough. It is a natural aging process that occurs because the lens inside the eye no longer focuses well enough to adjust the eye for close distances. It should be noted that this is a condition that occurs with your best distance glasses on. Some nearsighted people may be able to remove their glasses to read.
Contact lenses can be worn with presbyopia, however, they are more complicated to fit. There are options available to presbyopic patients. You should realize that all of the options present some compromise in vision and none will restore vision to how it was before the onset of presbyopia.
