Refractive errors, such as presbyopia, are usually identified during eye examinations. If you’re concerned or have any symptoms then contact your local SPECS network optician.
Presbyopia can be corrected by wearing reading glasses or contact lenses. Laser surgery is sometimes used to treat the condition, although it is not suitable for everyone.
