Presbyopia is an eye condition that is characterised by an inability to focus on objects that are nearby. It is a condition that is caused by the ageing process and is common in people reaching middle age.
When reaching their 40′s and 50′s, many people find they have difficulty in focusing and suffer from presbyopia to some degree – even if they have never had any trouble with their sight in the past. This is because, as the natural lens ages, it finds it more difficult to alter its focus from distance to near.
Your eyes are one of the most important parts of your body. They allow you to see what is going on around you, spot danger and opportunities and even witness some incredible sights that can be the starting point for most memories that you have.

If you take some small steps, you can ensure that your eyes will look after you for many years to come.
