Presbyopia occurs when the lens inside your eye loses its flexibility, making it difficult to focus on near objects. During the early years of life, the lens in the eyes has the ability to focus both near and distant images. As we age, the lens in the eyes loses some of its elasticity, therefore losing its ability to change focus.
