How do you diagnose presbyopia?

Dr. Richard Bensinger
Ophthalmology 54 years experience
Easy: First ask what is the age? If you are over 40 you either have or are getting presbyopia. If you currently don't need glasses or have glasses that correct your distant vision ok, then note that the near vision is getting difficult and the older you are over 40, the harder it will be. Your ophthalmologist will recommend what you need to compensate for this.
