Abstract

Ageing changes occur in all the structures of the eye causing varied effects. This article attempts to review the parameters of what is considered within the "normal limits" of ageing so as to be able to distinguish those conditions from true disease processes. Improving understanding of the ageing changes will help understand some of the problems that the ageing population faces.
