Study shows vision-improvement for 83 percent of sample.

The 507 patients studied were between ages 45 and 60 and had presbyopia but were not considered nearsighted. After three years, 83 percent of the patients reported having 20/40 vision, which is required to pass a driver’s license test, or better, researchers said. Read the study here.
