Presbyopia ( Small
Print Problems )
From about forty years old it gets more difficult
to focus close to. This is Presbyopia.
Why do I have Presbyopia?
The flexible lens inside the eye gets stiffer all
through our lives. After 40 the muscle which controls the lens finds
it harder to keep up with the stiffening lens and close focusing
gets more difficult.
What can I do about Presbyopia?
To build up the focusing muscle in the eye use
Trayner pinhole glasses to help you read in good light for fifteen
minutes a day.

"May I say how very pleased
I have been with them. By reading the paper each morning using the
glasses, I find my eyes have 'woken up' and I almost never need
any other use of spectacles. This is after eight years of total
dependence." Derry Jones (North Yorks)
