Presbyopia

This describes the condition where the eye exhibits a progressively diminished ability to focus on near objects with age. Presbyopia is a loss of elasticity of the crystalline lens, although changes in the lens's curvature from continual growth and loss of power of the ciliary muscles (the muscles that bend and straighten the lens) have also been postulated as its cause. The correction for presbyopia includes reading glasses, bifocals, multifocals or contact lenses (Multifocal or mono-vision). There are currently no successful surgical procedures to correct Presbyopia.
