In brief: Noone
Presbyopia is the term to describe aging of vision.
It is an irreversible consequence of getting old, just like hearing loss or arthritis. Surgery is not indicated, as it does not rejuvenate the eyes as a result. Vision correction with glasses or other eyewear may be needed. I bet, you will find tons of info out there on "natural" vision correction, but nothing is of proven benefit.

In brief: Presbyopia
The most common and effective surgical therapy for presbyopia is laser vision monovision correction (utilizing lasik or prk).
Patients over age 45 with no other eye abnormality can consider this treatment.

In brief: Only to see close up
Presbyopia refers to the inability to focus at near, usually people over 40 years old, "reading glasses" can correct the focus.
For surgery, many factors need to be considered, such as type of procedure, age, prescription, and eye health. Be sure to discuss with your eye surgeon.
