It’s no secret that vision problems typically occur the older we get. However, many people aren’t knowledgeable of the signs and symptoms that can come with age and vision changes.

- If you’re age 40 or over and are having difficulty reading up close, the problem may be Presbyopia. Presbyopia is a common condition where the eye loses the ability to see up close and therefore objects have to be seen and/or read from afar so that the lens can adjust itself appropriately. In the past, bifocals were a popular means of ridding this problem, but nowadays laser eye surgery is a great way to solve the problem of Presbyopia, also known as monovision.
