The first sign of presbyopia will appear for most people between the ages of 40-50. You´ll start to notice blurry vision when reading or performing small scale work. It is more difficult to read text messages or to see sharply when sewing or embroidering. This is a natural process that every person will experience, regardless if you were normal sighted, short- or far-sighted.

In the beginning, a balance can be created, by keeping the text far away or using stronger light. Later, however, these aids are no longer sufficient and reading glasses is a must.

Presbyopia affects ever one whether you were previously normal-sighted, short-sighted or far-sighted. Everyone is affected due to the diminishing elasticity of the natural eye lens in old age.

People who were previously normal-sighted, i.e. independent of visual aids, are now dependent on reading glasses. Patients that used to be short – or far – sighted, will become prescriptive from the age of 45 and onwards. For far-sighted patient, seeing at a short range is even worse. Short-sighted patients have to remove their glasses to read or need progressives lens.


Our lens is elastic and is responsible for bundling eye-catching rays of light in the center of the retina into focal point. The lens is stretchable, by adapting the lens ensures that we can fix things at different distances and to see clearly. This process is called accommodation.

Even from the age of 45, we can recognize things and people from a far distance. At the other hand recognizing objects at short distance is becoming more difficult. This is because our eye lens cannot bend around to focus on nearby objects.

When the cove of the eye lens becomes increasingly harder and therefore less flexible, incident light rays are no longer focused on but behind the retina and then we speak of accommodation loss.


Presbyopia can be corrected by implanting multifocal lenses, which replaces the body´s own lens due to the special design of the lenses, after surgery, patients can usually see well both at a distant and near objects and in most cases forego or reduce their use of visual aids in everyday life. This type of lens implantation, i.e. the implantation of multifocal lens, is suitable for presbyopia patients who are also near-sighted or far-sighted, because this can correct both the existing ametropia and presbyopia. The operation will last only about 10 minutes per eye. Both eyes are treated at a maximum of one week apart.
