    Just like your body, your eyes and vision change over time. Aging changes in various parts of the eye can result in a number of noticeable differences in how well you see. While not everyone will experience the same level of symptoms, the following are common age-related vision changes like need for more light,difficulty reading and close work, problems with glare, changes in color perception and reduce tear production.

    As you age, so do your eyes. You might find that you have difficulty reading small print or that you need brighter lighting at your desk. In addition, eye diseases that could lead to more-serious vision problems become more common with age. Consider cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. Glaucoma is a group of diseases that are usually associated with abnormally high pressure inside the eye. This pressure can damage the millions of nerve fibers that carry visual information from your eye via the optic nerve to your brain. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) occurs when tissue in the macula- the part of your retina that's responsible for the center of your visual field-deteriorates. This causes a blind spot to form in the center of your vision.
