Why can I no longer focus on objects up close?

Vision changes occur naturally as you age. When you reach your 40s, focusing at close range becomes difficult. This is a natural part of the aging process caused by a gradual hardening of the eyes crystalline lens, reducing its ability to change shape and focus. This condition is called Presbyopia.

What are progressive addition lenses and how do they differ from ordinary bifocals?

Progressive addition lenses feature a continuous, clear field of vision from distance, through the intermediate ranges, to near without the use of annoying bifocal lines.

Bifocal lenses use very old technology. Abrupt and awkward changes between distance and near prescriptions are separated by annoying lines that can be frustrating to wear.
