Presbyopia, a natural aging of the eye

Nowadays, vision tests take several factors into account: visual acuity, field of view, depth perception, contrast perception, color perception… Among most common visual problems (myopia, astigmatism, hyperopia…), presbyopia is the normal loss of near focusing ability after age 45. Then, the capacity of near vision decreases gradually.
