When do age-related vision problems begin to appear and how can they be diagnosed?
After 40 almost everyone needs to wear glasses. The eyes' ability to focus is no longer as flexible as it was in youth.
It is a good idea to have a general eye exam at least once a year to determine visual acuity. Even slight vision defects should be detected as early as possible, even though they may not be readily apparent. Over time, if left uncorrected, they can lead to impairment of normal activity. It is especially important, after age 40, to schedule an ophthalmologic exam to check for possible pathologies and an optometric exam to evaluate visual acuity.
