The aging process is a normal part of our lives and our eyes experience this process also. Natural aging affects the lens of the eye and makes stiffer, so it can no longer change shape to focus on objects at near.
Around the age of 45, many people begin to notice changes in their vision and begin to need reading glasses. Even those who had perfect vision all their life may find themselves struggling with seeing close objects as clearly as they once did.
Squinting your Eyes to See Clearly; Developing Presbyopia
Do you ever find yourself holding a book or your phone out further than you did before? Or increasing the font sizes on your computer? Maybe things are just starting to look blurry up close and your eyes are straining to see, especially in dim light. These can be aging signs of presbyopia.
If you answered yes to any of these questions then you may have Presbyopia. Many of us go through this and is a common reason for reading glasses. Occasionally, presbyopia can also begin earlier as a result of certain medical conditions or medications.
Eye Exam for Those Over 40 Years of Age
It is recommended after the age of 40 to have yearly eye examinations to ensure the continued health of your eyes and to optimize your vision as you age. Presbyopia is usually first detected around this time and continues to progress until their mid to late 70s.
Muscle Loss and Elasticity in the Eye
With age, the lens inside your eyes become more rigid, less elastic and less flexible. This loss of elasticity makes it harder for your eyes to change shape as they once did, and this is what causes the blurred vision of close by objects.
