Presbyopia is a condition associated with aging, which makes it increasingly difficult for the eyes to focus on near objects. Presbyopia: Therapies and Further Prospects is a concise review of treatments and possible developments in the treatment of this condition.

Divided into four chapters, the book covers the principles of correction with glasses and contact lenses, as well as ocular surgeries. Surgical procedures such as conductive keratoplasty and LASIK are included, as well as accommodative (focus) restoration, such as intraocular lenses (IOLs).
