Helpful information for aging eyesight

Many in the over-40 crowd have difficulty focusing on close-up objects. It’s a common condition called presbyopia. Blurry vision makes reading an arm extension exercise—the text becomes clear only after it’s moved farther away from the eyes.

In addition to regular visits with an eye care professional, we encourage you to be aware of changes to your eyesight and what you can do about them.
