FAQS

Presbyopia is an inevitable condition of aging. Its time of onset varies, but usually occurs between the ages of 40 to 45, when individuals begin to lose their ability to see close objects. This occurs when the lens, the clear focusing portion of the eye, thickens and gradually becomes resistant to bending or focusing. This is not, as many people fear, a serious deterioration of the eye. It is simply part of the normal aging process, and though not reversible, it is easily corrected.
