In this article the writer discusses the possible causes of age-related vision loss. The writer looks into the matter of possible treatment for such kind of vision loss. Further the writer examines how vision loss may affect the person, physically, emotionally, intellectually and/or psychologically. The writer concludes that the effect of age-related vision loss is highly dependent on how the person accepts the severity of his or her case. For those who can accept it positively, they will then subject themselves for various treatments thereby minimizing the negative impact of vision loss. However, the writer points out that for those who may find it very hard to accept the fact that they are actually having difficulty to see things clearly, they would have the tendency not to seek any help or treatment from the registered medical professionals. This in turn would heighten the negative impact of their vision loss. This paper includes diagrams of statistics.

From the Paper:

"Vision impairment is defined as the vision that is 20/40 or worse in the better eye even with glasses. In America, more or less 6.5 million people who have reached the age of 55 are suffering from blindness or severe vision loss. Further, it was also found out that one in every six people who reached the age of 65 and one in every three who reached 85 and above years old are having problems with some degree of vision loss. These numbers are continuously rising as the years go by. Indeed, age-related eye diseases are found to be the most common cause of blindness and vision impairment."
