    Yes, no one in the world can escape presbyopia, even if he has never had a vision problem before in his lifetime. Presbyopia often occurs at around age 40 due to aging. As age grows, the natural lens thickens gradually and is in the loss of flexibility, so the eyes undergo a hard time to focus on close things.

    Well, yes, you will get presbyopia with age. And in common, when you are 60 years old, it is possible to have presbypoia. First, you should know that it will make you difficult to read small words at close distances or to work on the computer for long periods of time. And for the reasons why people get presbyopia with age, there is something you should know. Generally speaking, age-related changes will occur within the proteins in the lens, and then, it will make the lens harder and less elastic over time. That is why when we get older, the presbyopia will occur and it may become worse. So you should just be careful about it.

    Well, the individual often first suffer presbyopia between age 40-50. And I think your friends are right that everyone will get presbyopia. And the ages you first realize may be different because of the individual body quality. But relax, it is normal physiological reaction, everyone will suffer it.
