What is presbyopia?


Presbyopia, also known as “short arm disease”, is the progressive loss of ability to see at close range, caused by the natural course of aging. Normally, men and women over 40 notice their eyes no longer accommodate. This is due to the loss of flexibility of the crystalline lens, historically treated with glasses and, more recently, with surgical techniques. Now Método Benozzi®, the first drug treatment for presbyopia, restores the ability to read without glasses or surgical procedures.
