Farsightedness with age is nothing extraordinary. And with a pair of reading glasses this widespread debility of sight can be remedied in an uncomplicated manner. Important are the right glasses, a high-quality frame – and of course the right diopter number.

Presbyopia arises mostly from the age of 40 and increases as time progresses.
