You are experiencing symptoms of a natural process related to aging in the eye and is called presbyopia. In this condition certain changes occur in the elasticity of the lens and eye muscles, which makes accommodation ( a process in the eye which is responsible for focusing near objects) reduced. It usually begins to be noticed around the age of 40 years. It is rectified by wearing glasses for near work ( reading /writing).

At this stage it is best to consult an optician so that you can be given glasses according to your need. You can choose from various options such as only readers, bifocals, progressives ( depending on the result of the refraction test done by the optician).

Thank you and best wishes
