Boomer's Vision Better Than Expected
Vision impairment -- one of the more common complaints associated with aging eyes -- has seen a steep drop in older Americans, according to a new study in the journal Ophthamology.
The study -- conducted by Northwestern Medical -- found that 23 percent of people over the age of 65 had "activity-limiting visual impairment" problems (for example, they weren't able to read the paper). But by 2010, this type of impairment saw an age-adjusted 58 percent drop, with only 9.7 percent of 65+ year olds saying poor vision getting in the way of an active lifestyle, Northwestern University reported.
