Why the world looks less colorful as you get older ?

Age-Related Eye Changes: The lens of the eye tends to yellow and become denser with age, causing colors to appear less bright.

Eye Diseases: Conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration can impact color vision.

1. Reduced Number of Photoreceptors: As we age, the number of photoreceptors in the retina may decrease, which can reduce sensitivity to light and color.

1. Medication Side Effects: Some medications can affect vision, including color perception.

1. Lifestyle Factors: Smoking, poor nutrition, and exposure to UV light may also contribute to changes in color perception.
