Are You Suffering from Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is usually found in people who are 40 years of age. People with presbyopia experience blurred vision of near objects. The exact cause of presbyopia is not known yet and this condition is considered as a natural part of our aging process. The flexibility of the natural crystalline lens deteriorates in individuals suffering from presbyopia. This condition may feel to you as if it suddenly happened, but actually the loss of lens flexibility is a gradual process that takes years to become noticeable. Presbyopia is not considered a disease and at the moment does not have a preventive treatment. The major symptoms of presbyopia include blurred vision, strains after reading for a long time and feeling tired or having a headache after reading in low-light environments.
