In brief: Old eyes!

It is an aging change.
Some people call it shortsightedness, but it just means loss of ability to focus at near.

In brief: Eyes getting older

Progressive impairment of aging eyes to accomodate to close up objects, there is progressive loss of elesticity of the crystalline lens causing loss of accomodation by the eye to focus clearly on near objects, hence need to either step back to focus or hold objects further frm the eye in order to see them clearly.
