What you need to know about aging eyes

The effects of aging can be felt throughout our body, but vision is perhaps the one thing where we can notice gradual decline. Blindness in adults is most commonly a result of aging, and once we get past 60, the number of diseases and risks increases. It is surprising to find out that, despite these clear signs of vision issues, only a small population percentage commits to regular exams. As a result, many diseases are diagnosed only after they’ve progressed beyond the point where successful treatment is possible.

Key Takeaways:

  • Aging brings exposure to a host of eye diseases, but most people still don’t receive regular exams.
  • Untreated glaucoma can lead to blindness, but about half of sufferers don’t know they have the condition.
  • Symptoms of macular degeneration include blurred vision, blind spots, and difficulty with low light levels.
