MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

Choices D and E both imply that the glasses or middle age are the things that have been damaged, not the eyes. ‘A consequence from’ in B is incorrect. Choice C uses the wrong verb tense, the simple past. The present should be used to form parallel structure with ‘discover’. Choice A is the correct answer.
