Abnormal binocular vision, which involves the way eyes work together as a team, increases dramatically as we age. As many as 27 per cent of adults in their sixties have an actual binocular vision or eye movement disorder. That number rises to 38 per cent for those over age 80. About 20 per cent of the general population suffers from a binocular vision disorder, which affects depth perception and therefore may increase the risk of falls. Thirty to 40 per cent of the population is an exceptionally high rate of incidence for any disorder. The study also quantifies binocular vision loss with age and show a connection with antidepressant use and general health. Conditions such as diabetes and thyroid disease are known to cause such problems, but this is the first study to link binocular vision disorders with overall general health. The study suggests that the rate of binocular vision disorders in older adults is higher than expected. Many binocular vision disorders are treatable with glasses, vision therapy, or in some cases surgery.
