Presbyopia is the age-related loss of accommodation that is commonly seen in people over 40 years old. Presbyopia occurs because the lens loses its elasticity and the ability to focus on near objects. What are the options for treating presbyopia? There are now numerous treatments, including spectacles or contact lenses, undergoing corneal refractive surgery, or implantation of multifocal intraocular lenses. Spectacles with bifocal or progressive lenses represent the most common method employed to correct presbyopia.
