Vision

by nboydgibbins

With age, both the cornea and the lens in your eye – which light must pass through to reach the photo-sensitive retina inside the eyeball – begin to yellow. This colour change causes a lot of light in the blue spectrum to be scattered and absorbed. This means that with age we all see less contrast between shades of blue, green and violet. Blues will be dulled in your perception compared to when you were young.
