Eye development from early to late stages in life:
Infant Vision: Birth to 24 Months of Age
Healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role in how infants and children learn to see. Eye and vision problems in infants can cause developmental delays.
Preschool Vision: 2 to 5 Years of Age
Steps taken during these years to help ensure vision is developing normally can provide a child with a good "head start" for school.
School-aged Vision (6 to 18 years of age)
Adult Vision (19 to 40 years of age)
Adult Vision (41 to 60 years of age)
If you are over 40 years of age, you've probably noticed slight changes in your vision. Difficulty seeing clearly for reading and close work is among the most common problems adults develop between ages 41 to 60. However, this is also the time when other changes in your eyes can start to affect your work and enjoyment of life.
Adult Vision (Over 60 years of age)
Its a fact of life that vision changes occur as you get older. But these changes dont have to compromise your lifestyle. Knowing what to expect and when to seek professional care are important steps to safeguarding your vision.
