Vision Changes with Age, Vision Problems & Eye Problems with Age

Understanding eye health and age allows for early detection of eye diseases in children by Cohen's Fashion Optical professionals. Though vision changes with age are primarily noticeable with older adults, children should have their first eye doctor visit starting at 6 months to 1 year of age. Early exams identify eye problems before they become worse. And many vision problems in young children can be easily corrected with prescription eyeglasses.

The relationship between eye health and age is usually noticeable as an adult nears 40. Common vision changes with age begin to occur, including diminished eyesight and increased sensitivity to glare. The risk of eye problems also increases with middle age. And many vision problems, including cloudy eyesight, may be related to other eye problems with age, like cataracts. Subheadline: Taking eye health and age seriously is as important as other age-related health issues. More than detecting vision changes with age, regular eye exams also determine the onset of major eye diseases like glaucoma.

The eye health and age of newborns is especially important for optometrist to consider when detecting early eye diseases that are common among infants.

The eye health and age of older adults such as seniors must also be carefully monitored by eye doctors.
