Presbyopia occurs as a small muscle inside the eye slowly weakens.
The muscle makes the lens of the eye work like a magnifying glass. It actually gets fatter which brings things close-up into focus.
But as we age so does this muscle. The lens can't change shape as easily, and we need reading glasses to do it for us-- not always so easy to accept.
