This condition becomes common once we reach our late 40s.

This is an age-related condition whereby switching focus between distant and up-close objects becomes increasingly noticeable and difficult.

This occurs because the flexibility of our natural lens diminishes with age resulting in the need to wear different glasses for different focal lengths – near and far. Those that can currently see well at a distance will require glasses to assist close-up focus and vice-versa.

The condition becomes common once we reach our late 40s.


This is a common condition easily corrected with multifocals, bifocals or glasses that feature two focal lengths or by Lasik Blended Vision (monovision) wherein one eye is corrected for close-up vision and the other for distance, removing the need for glasses altogether.
