Three Significant Predictors of Faster Age-Related Visible Decline With adjustment for other factors, three optical procedures predicted a larger change in visible acuity. These included one optical quality measure , one measure of optical light scatter , and one measure of lens clouding . Together, these three procedures accounted for 32 % of the modification in visible acuity in individuals with larger-than-expected change in visual acuity. Older age explained in additional two % of the noticeable change. For the overall sample of 148 eyes, the same factors explained 15 % of the noticeable change in visual acuity.Shirley Hallam, 68, from Wear and Tyne, Soroptimist International President of Tynemouth, Whitley Bay and District, has been a dedicated supporter of Campaign over the past year, managing to get the support of a variety of local businesses and operating strategically with North Tyneside Council to help raise awareness of breast cancer research in the community.
