By the age of 65, one in three individuals has some form of vision-reducing eye disease. Some of the most common age-related eye diseases among seniors include cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
Most adults start developing vision issues between their mid-40s and early 50s, particularly when reading and working on computers. Poor vision at close distances is one of the most common vision challenges between the ages of 40 and 60. However, this is a normal change with the eye’s ability to focus and may progress with time.
