Presbyopia: Presbyopia is an inevitable hardening of the natural lens for near focus which occurs from 40-52 years of age in all. It means if you wear eyeglasses, you will have to add a bifocal or if you never wore glasses, you will need to purchase reading glasses. There is no cure, only lens correction.
