The Ageing Eye

  • N. R. Galloway

Abstract

Although the eye undergoes a number of well-defined changes with age, the distinction between these involutionary changes and disease is not always clear cut. For the elderly patient it is often reassuring to know that the problem is part of a ‘normal’ process rather than the result of a specific illness and perhaps sometimes an artificial demarcation is drawn for the benefit of the patient.
