What is the difference between Hyperopia and Presbyopia?

Even though, the symptoms for this 2 conditions are very similar where near vision is affected, one key difference between these 2 conditions, is that presbyopia sets in after ages of around 40 as it is due to aging. Whereas hyperopia is a condition where it can affect people of all ages.
