The above scenario is a common tell-tale symptom of presbyopia.
Unfortunately, as we get older, the lenses in our eyes lose some of their elasticity, and with this they lose some of their ability to change focus for distances up close.
The loss is gradual. Long before we become aware that seeing close up is becoming more difficult, the lenses in our eyes have begun losing their ability to change shape to help focus light rays. Only when the loss of elasticity impairs our vision to a noticeable degree do we recognize the change.
