Internal Medicine and Pediatrics 15 years experience
Glasses: Presbyopia is simply farsightedness that comes with age as the lens of the eye hardens slightly and has more difficulty adjusting to near objects. Most often it is treated with corrective lenses.
Dr. Theodore Wu
Ophthalmology 22 years experience
Presbyopia: Many options exist. Glasses are the easiest way, and contacts work well. Some people do monovision where one eye is corrected for near and another is corrected for distance. Lasik surgery can treat presbyopia in certain cases. For folks with cataracts, new implants can give patients near and far vision.

With glasses: Presbyopia is the natural diminution in the power of the lens to focus for near which occurs in all over age 40. The usual treatment for those who never needed glasses before, is reading glasses obtainable in most pharmacies. If there is a distance correction already present, then bifocals might be the best solution.
