Presbyopia Treatment In Johannesburg, South Africa
Presbyopia is a condition in which the eye’s lens is no longer able to properly focus on objects that are up close. As the eye ages, its lens loses elasticity and the muscles used to adjust the lens weaken. The lens then becomes unable to change shape as easily as when it was younger.
Most patients begin to notice these changes in their vision around 45 years old and can be diagnosed with presbyopia during a general eye exam. Since the main cause is aging, it generally affects everyone at some point in their lives.
