Aged 40 to 60...
and frustrated with your glasses?
What to consider when you’re aged between 40 and 60
After the age of 45 the lens inside the eye becomes less flexible so that you lose the ability to “pull focus” for near objects. This is called presbyopia or “short-arm syndrome” and creates a whole new set of vision problems for people in this age group.
Common problems and solutions

Since there are a variety of eye surgery solutions to the problem of blurred distance vision (whether it is caused by myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism) it is vital to tailor the solution to the individual patient’s eyes. Whilst laser eye surgery is a great option for many people, some patients with high prescriptions achieve a better quality of vision with lens replacement.
