Vision and Aging
As you age, your body goes through numerous changes. Your eyes are no exception.

Among eye conditions of particular concern to older adults are farsightedness, "floaters," cataracts and glaucoma, as well as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other diseases of the retina.

Many serious conditions of the eye are easily treatable if detected during their early stages. For this reason, persons over 40 should make it a point to have a routine eye examination at least once a year.
