OLDER AGE (OVER SIXTY YEARS)

In this older age group, one begins to find a large spectrum of eye diseases. The underlying causes are often an interplay between the effects of the environment and the genetic make-up of the individual. Many of the causative factors that were discussed for the previous age groups apply to older individuals as well. Stress, diet, improper use of the eyes, physical trauma from sun radiation and mechanical agents (especially home handy work), infection, allergy, and age related degeneration are all factors that can be involved in eye disease affecting the elderly.
