I'm myopia now, then will I not be presbyopia when I'm 40?

Presbyopia is a physiological phenomenon, and everyone will. It is called presbyopia because the function of the ciliary muscle decreases with age, making it difficult to see close (especially in reading and writing). People with nearsightedness or good eyesight will develop presbyopia a little later. If the nearsightedness is not deep, it can be balanced with presbyopia, so take off the optical eyeglasses when looking at the near.

Generally, if the degree is between -1.00 and -2.00, you don't need to wear glasses all the time when looking at things close by, which will not increase the adjustment of the eye. If you need reading and it's best to wear it, otherwise the degree will deepen. If it is greater than -3.00 degrees, you need to wear it often whether you are looking at near or far. If you don't wear it, you will see objects blurry, and the adjustment of eye will deepen, resulting in fatigue and vision. If you need more help, your eye doctor is your best person for advice.
