As you age, it's normal for changes to occur in your eyes. Cells can break down, the vitreous gel in your eyes may become more watery and proteins in your eyes can cluster together and impact your vision. Additionally, some health conditions that you're more prone to developing as you age, such as diabetes and some types of arthritis, can impact on your eye health. Having regular eye tests can allow eye problems to be diagnosed early, which can minimise the damage to your vision and help you maintain your independence.
