As you age, vision skills develop and degenerate along with other body parts. For instance, your eyesight may function differently than it did in your 20s or 30s the moment you reach the age of 60 or 70.

While these changes are normal, offer few risks, and can still be corrected with eyeglasses, contacts, or surgery, other changes in vision could be a symptom of a serious eye disease.

Be it age or a severe vision problem, poor eyesight can interfere with everyday activities. Thus, it is important to get your eyes checked regularly to detect and treat vision difficulties. Likewise, knowing how vision skills develop and degenerate can also increase awareness on how to care for your eyes as you age.
