After years of stable, clear vision, are you now experiencing issues with glare and blurry vision? This decline in vision may be due to the normal aging of the lens called Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome, or DLS. DLS is a common, age-related condition in which the lens inside the eye progressively loses its natural flexibility. Vision begins to deteriorate as patients age into their 40s, and the main symptom is difficulty with near vision.
DLS occurs naturally over time and will even affect patients who had LASIK, a procedure that only addresses the cornea, not the lens itself.
