Presbyopia or age related longsightedness for close work.
This occurs in people over the age of 40 because the lens in your eye hardens and loses its ability to change shape making it harder to focus on close objects.
You may find your self holding things further away to focus on them.
Presbyopia causes problems when using computers and reading.
