Aging eyes is the same as Presbyopia

Eyes - presbyopia

Published on Vision.

It is also called tired or aging eyes.

The person suffering from presbyopia needs to stretch his arms to see well. So things close up, he needs to move objects away from him.

He measures up the distance, moves away. He overviews. He feels closer to death.

Everything is ok, but what have I done with my life?

This condition normally starts at the beginning of the second part of the person’s life. It represents the quest for purpose. “I only have X years left. And I still have so much to do. Ah, if only I could push the deadline further away…”

Old people should be wiser and have an overall view of things. It is a shame that many can only see well at a distance when presbyopia prevents them from seeing properly close up. What the body shows the person suffering from presbyopia is that he still has a long way ahead. That he can see very well in the distance. In order to force the person to do this, the body has reduced his capacity to look things up closely, its capacity to see the details.

In our western society, old people do not cultivate wisdom but rather regret being old and not having lived enough. Nostalgia… “Ah, if only we could go back a few years!”

It is actually common that the majority of old people are unable to remember recent events, while having a vivid recollection of the past.

Farsightedness should not be mistaken with presbyopia.

The person suffering from presbyopia needs to take a distance and to have an overview of life.

The person suffering from Farsightedness lives in constant fear and anxiety: “ I may be caught!”
