This is due to the fact that the cells in our eyes that produce differentiation amongst colors begin to slow down their production rate and often get old with the age. • The light source As you grow old you might require more light or another bigger source of light to focus more on object rather than you required earlier. This is because the adaptability of our eyes to light changes.
