Presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration are 3 of the most common eye diseases in the UK that can develop in older age.

Unsure what these conditions are? Here are some explanations


Presbyopia occurs naturally in the eye during middle-age. It’s a condition that causes near sight loss as a result of the eye’s muscles weakening, the lens thickening and losing its flexibility. Unfortunately this tends to affect everyone, whether you’ve previously had a vision problem or not.


A cataract often develops in the eye’s lens as a result of aging, but experts have also identified that smoking, diabetes, obesity and ultraviolet radiation from the sun can also cause cataract progression.
