          Every year 50,000 Americans become blind. Blindness occurs most often with advancing age, with half of all blind people generally considered to be over sixty-five. A significant number of blind people, however, are children or young adults. Here are some of the more common causes.

          Many other vision disorders can cause blindness. If you are experiencing difficulty with your vision, seek attention from a professional eye specialist immediately. Blindness isn't the end of the world, still there's no reason to go blind when you don't have to.
