The causes of presbyopia are the cornea and the lens. The lens and the cornea are somewhat flexible and they can change the shape with the help of circular muscles that surrounds it. Presbyopia is caused by a hardening of the lens of the eye, which occurs with aging. When the lens becomes less flexible, it can no longer change the shape to focus on close-up images. After the result, these images appear out of focus.
