In brief: Not really

You are probably referring to the hardening of the lens which occurs with age (presbyopia) which inhibits the ability to see at near unless near corrective lenses are worn.
There is no way to avoid this universal condition of humans but your ophthalmologist can offer ways to compensate using proper eyeglasses and certain types of contact lens.
