Q&A with Dr. B.

Dr. Seth Bachelier Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Why can’t I see up close anymore?

The term for losing near vision as we age is called presbyopia. When we are young, our focusing system is typically really, really strong and our eye muscles can alter the shape of our natural lens inside the eye, allowing us to see well up close. But, the natural lens hardens and the muscles tend of weaken over time which makes focusing to read much more difficult. This process happens to EVERYONE with no exceptions! It generally begins around age 45 and continues until age 60 or 65 when the process is complete. The one caveat is for some nearsighted people, who can occasionally (with the EXACT amount of nearsightedness) see to read by just lifting their glasses up. But even that can be short lived. Treating presbyopia is fairly simple with bifocal glasses, no-line bifocals or progressives, and even with multifocal contact lenses. There are certainly a number of options to help with near vision for almost every lifestyle imaginable.
