There are more ‘aging conditions’ that excist in the eye, such as cataract or macular degeneration. So i would not call it the aging eye condition. Just describe it as “the normal loss of near focussing ability that occurs with age”.

The signs and symptoms of presbyopia include difficulty reading small prints, difficulty seeing objects at close distances and having to hold reading materials further than an arm’s distance away. A person with presbyopia may experience eye strain and headaches. Symptoms of presbyopia are often significant after the age of 40.

Presbyopia is usually corrected with eyeglasses with progressive lenses, bifocal lenses or reading glasses. Multifocal contact lenses, and a contact lens correction called monovision, may also be used to correct presbyopia. There are also different options for correcting presbyopia with surgery. Currently, the easee online eye test cannot test for presbyopia.
