Inside the eye there are a set of muscles connected to a lens. In order to focus your eyes, you contract the muscles to change the shape of the lens. When you’re young the lens is soft and flexible, so focusing is easy. As you age the lens gets hard and rubbery. This results in presbyopia, or the inability to focus. Presbyopia can be corrected with bifocals, progressive lenses, or reading glasses.
