Your Vision Throughout Life
Babies learn to see, just like they learn to walk and talk. They are not born with all the visual abilities they need in life.
Preschool Vision: 2 to 5 Years of Age
In the preschool years, children develop the visual abilities they will need throughout school and life.
School-aged Vision: 6 to 18 years of age
Good vision is key to success in school. It is estimated that as much as 80% of children's learning occurs through their eyes.
Adult Vision: 19 to 40 years of age
Most adults in this age range enjoy healthy eyes and good vision. The most common eye and vision problems are due to visual stress and eye injuries.
Adult Vision: 41 to 60 years of age
Difficulty seeing clearly for reading and close work is among the most common problems adults develop between these ages.
Adult Vision: Over 60 years of age
Vision changes as you get older, but these changes don't have to compromise your lifestyle. Knowing what to expect and when to seek professional care can help you safeguard your vision.
