Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

With age, your eyes are less able to produce tears, your retinas thin, and your lenses gradually turn yellow and become less clear.  In your 40s, focusing on objects that are close up may become more difficult.  Later, the coloured portions of your eyes (irises) stiffen, making your pupils less responsive.  This can make it more difficult to adapt to different levels of light.  Other changes to your lenses can make you sensitive to glare, which presents a problem when driving at night.  Cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration are the most common problems of aging eyes. 

Hearing loss is one of the most common conditions affecting adults who are middle-aged and older.  One in three people older than 60 and half of all people older than 85 have significant hearing loss.  Over the years, sounds and noise can damage the hair cells of your inner ears. 

Also, the walls of your auditory canals thin, and your eardrums thicken.  You may have difficulty hearing high frequencies.  Some people find it difficult to follow a conversation in a crowded room.  Changes in the inner ear or in the nerves attached to it, earwax buildup and various diseases can all affect your hearing.

Your bones reach their maximum mass between ages 25 and 35.  As you age, your bones shrink in size and density.  One consequence is that you might become shorter.  Gradual loss of density weakens your bones and makes them more susceptible to fracture.  Muscles, tendons and joints generally lose some strength and flexibility as you age.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
