A medida que pasan los años el lente cristalino del ojo pierde flexibilidad, haciendo difícil enfocar objetos de cerca.

Esta condición se conoce como presbiopía y parece que ocurre de repente, pero la pérdida de flexibilidad ocurre a través de los años, aunque por lo general no comienza a notarse hasta los 40 años. Como no es una enfermedad, no puede prevenirse.
