Presbyopia meaning "old person" describes the state where the eye exhibits an increasingly diminished capability to focus on near objects with age.

Symptoms of Presbyopia –

Most people start having trouble reading fine print, above all in low light conditions, eyestrain when reading for long periods, blur at near or temporarily blurred vision when transitioning between viewing distances. Many advanced presbyopes complain that their arms have become "too short" to hold reading material at a comfortable distance.
