All of a sudden, you find it difficult to push a thread through the eye of the needle or you have to hold your newspaper far away from your face so that you can read it.
These are the first signs of the age-related vision problem called presbyopia. It is a normal process and no cause for concern. Advanced progressive addition lenses are now available to ensure that you can enjoy clear vision near and far.
As accommodation begins to decline, the ability to focus at close range is reduced, because the lens is unable to bend sufficiently. Consequently, light beams that penetrate the eye from nearby don’t come to a focus on the retina, and the result is a blurred image.
