The visual system is the third sensory system to start its normal decline in function.
The need for increased lighting is due to the loss of flexibility of the lens.

ANSWER: B & C are FALSE. B) The visual system is the first sensory system to start its normal decline in function and typically begins in the second decade of life. C) The need for increased lighting is from the loss of ability of the dilator muscles, which regulate the diameter of the pupil to expand to let in light, as well as the loss of photosensitivity and numbers of rods and cones in the retina.
