Describes the condition where the eye exhibits a progressively diminished ability to focus on near objects with age.
This ability to focus near objects slowly and gradually starts to decline from a young age itself. However the effect of this is seen only at the age of 40 years and beyond when you find it difficult to read small print at close up distances. You are forced to hold print further away to see clearly.

Spectacle Options
1. Progressive lenses: These lenses are the most modern and give you the most natural vision for all distances. Unlike Bifocals they don't have dividing lines and give near natural vision allowing you to see distant objects and objects close to you.

2. Bifocal lenses: Bifocal lenses have a 'D' shaped segment and provide correction only for two zones i.e. distance and near.

3. Reading lenses: Typically these are worn at the bottom of the nose to view close up objects and work when you don't have a distance power for you can look above the glasses to see at a distance.

Contact Lens Options
Contact lenses come in bifocal and progressive designs and come as disposable lenses. They give you the advantage of freedom from glasses and optimal vision at your desired working distances. They are recommended for those who play sport and if you want to have freedom from glasses.
