YOUNGER ADULTS (UP TO EARLY FORTIES)

The new problems encountered in younger adults are related mainly to over-use of the eyes, physical injuries and environmental irritants. Most people, who already would have worn glasses in their school-age years, would continue to be wearing glasses for the particular tasks required.

At this age, the eyes are fully mature and can be considered to be rather "set", as they are no longer as plastic as in the previous two age categories mentioned above. Hence excessive close work will not induce as much short-sightedness, and provided the diet is adequate, the visual system tires less quickly than before. This is not to say however that the eyes can no longer adapt by becoming short-sighted, or that they no longer fatigue to the extent where blurred or double vision is noticed after excessive close work. The interval between examinations is usually greater for those people in this age group than in any other age group. This follows from the fact that the visual system is more stable during these years.
