In presbyopia, person is unable to see / read clearly at a normal near working distance, but the distance vision is usually clear. This is usually considered as part of aging and this may appear in late forties of early fifties. Presbyopia does not occur suddenly. It is the consequence of the slow and progressive decline in the eye vision range with age.

This occurs as the lens in the eye is not able to efficiently change the curvature as in the early life.
