AGED 60 PLUS…
AND STILL ENDURING YOUR GLASSES?
What to consider when you’re aged 60 plus
After the age of 60 the optical quality of the lens inside the eye may become worse, eventually turning into a cloudy cataract. Initially, you can see fairly well with glasses, but later the vision is poor, even with glasses or contact lenses. Because these changes creep up slowly, you only realise how bad things were once they’ve been fixed.
