This happens due to the fact that over the years, our lenses become less flexible and lose their ability to focus. Sunlight, dust, and wind also take their toll and the conjunctiva (the transparent epithelial tissue covering the outer surface of the eyeball and the inner part of the eyelid) gets thinner with age. Don’t forget that the muscles of the orbital region weaken over time, too. All of this, together with a number of ophthalmologic diseases, can contribute to increased eye fatigue and reduced quality of vision.
