Vision Changes at 41-55 Years of Age

Screen Shot 2021 04 06 at 3.21.17 PM

Did you know that your eyes have been changing since childhood? Over the course of your life, the lens in each eye begins to stiffen and slowly begins to lose its ability to change focus from near to far.

After age 40, these gradual vision changes often begin to manifest as having difficulty quickly changing focus. For example, you may notice transient blur at a distance after you have been doing a lot of near work. This is called Presbyopia, which will continue to advance through your early 50’s when near vision changes should then stop.

Presbyopia is not curable or preventable and it occurs for everyone. Your local optometrist can assist in correcting your vision with eyeglasses or contact lenses so that you can maintain your quality of life.
