    Speaking from my own experience...late 30s seem to be when your vision deteriorates alittle. I know my parents were around that age too when they fiund they needed glasses for reading

      I agree. A lot of people have vision problems  when they are 40+.

    I don't know, but a Harvard study released recently showed that coffee was linked to vision loss. So its more than just age, its substances + age + environment etc, etc.

    There are many factors that determine when and if your eyes deteriorate, starting with whether bad vision is in your genes.
    I started wearing glasses while I was still at school, shortly after South Africa first got a television service (much later than most of the world).  I've always blamed television for the deterioration in my eyesight.
    In my case my eyes have actually improved with age and the glasses I wear now have a much weaker prescription than the ones I wore when I was eighteen years old.
    Age does play a factor though, especially when it comes to reading.  Several people  I know have suddenly started wearing glasses in their forties.  But contact lenses are so common that I believe the number of young people with poor vision is much higher than it appears.

    There is no real age or set time, it depends on many factors. Looking at the computer screen, needing glasses and not wearing them, not using tear drops while working with screens, not taking a couple minutes rest every half hour to keep your eyes closed.

    A person's eye sight starts going down hill in their late 40's. So keep on hubbing while you can still see  smile

    It depends who you ask. My vision started out bad at birth. With glasses and age, it got a little better until I was about 40, then started declining. Now, at the almost 62 mark, I am dealing with cataracts. Just had the one on the left eye removed, so it is back to 20/200. The right eye will be done next month and I hope to retain 20/40 so I can still drive.

    My vision started to go blurry when i was in my 7th grade started using the computer 
    By the time I was in 9th grade it got worse because I was rigorously Using my Mobile, PC continuosly.

    So I think other than Birth defect we make our eye sight or vision loss manually.
