Dom Joly health: 'It really creeps up on you' – comedian on progressive health condition

“Especially as I spend a lot of time reading and writing. Once I got glasses it was crazy. It was really good.”

The Mayo Clinic explains that presbyopia is caused by the hardening of the lens in your eye. This occurs with ageing, and as your lens becomes less flexible it can no longer change shape to focus on close-up or distant images. As a result, images appear out of focus.

Like Dom, the condition can be diagnosed through a simple eye examination and can be treated with corrective glasses, contact lenses or lens implant surgery.

Glasses are a simple and safe way to correct vision problems, caused by presbyopia, but it is always best to go for an eye test in case there might be an underlying cause of symptoms.
