What is Presbyopia?
Progressive loss of the power of focusing the eyes on close objects as a function of age. Presbyopia results from loss of elasticity of the internal crystalline lenses of the eye so that they are no longer capable of relaxing into the more spherical shape needed for close viewing. The cause is unknown.
