Prevailing wisdom holds that increasing lens stiffness causes presbyopia. Treatments for presbyopia have therefore focused on altering the mechanical properties of the ocular lens. The present work shows an age-related decline in accommodation amplitude may be predicted without invoking changes in lens stiffness.
