    When people get old, Presbyopia is a major vision problem among the old. Glaucoma and cataract are commonly reported among old people. Also old people are on a higher risk of eye floaters and flashes.

    It is unbelievable that some people in their 80s still have good vision. It is definitely true that old individuals have different degrees of vision ability. Older people will have presbyopia, glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. So early detection and treatment of these underlying diseases are essential to control and cure them.
