Blurry Menu? Straining to see objects up close? That looks like Presbyopia.

It finally happened: you meet a friend at a restaurant, pick up the menu - and those appetizers are a blur. This condition has a name - no, not "aging," you're just getting into your prime - it's called Presbyopia. You know the signs: you need to hold books, magazines and menus further and further away in order to focus properly. Close-work, like knitting or handwriting, can give you a headache or cause eyestrain. There are over 90 million "presbyopes" in the U.S. - many of whom have never had a vision problem before.

  • So how did this happen?

  • Avoiding reading glasses? There are other ways to correct Presbyopia.
