****CONNIE AUDIO ON CART****
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.

One of the first signs of presbyopia is the need to hold things farther and farther away from you face in order to make it out.
Other signs are eye fatigue and achiness over the brow.
Presbyopia affects men and women equally but it may take men longer to admit it's happening.
Men on average will wait seven years before they'll seek help for presbyopia.
