 . By the time you turn 70, the size of your pupil will get reduced to one third of its size when you are 20. Also the responsiveness of pupil to bright light also gets diminished. The lens becomes yellowed, less flexible, and slightly cloudy.

 . The eye muscles also will get less able to fully rotate the eye. Another important problem during old age is to focus the eye to something close. This condition is called presbyopia.

 As you get aged, the gel- like substance called vitreous inside your eye starts to shrink. This creates small particles called floaters in your field of vision. In most of the cases, floaters do not reduce your vision.
