The oldest presidents inaugurated in American history are:

The video of Biden’s eye filled with blood is just the latest of a long history of serious health issues for the longtime Democrat — issues that have voters on both sides of the aisle concerned with his vitality. Biden himself has called these health concerns “totally legitimate.”
In the past, Biden has suffered two life-threatening aneurysms, one of which required emergency surgery and another involved removing the top of his skull.

According to The Washington Examiner, Biden suffered an aneurysm in 1988 that nearly killed him. He was rushed into emergency surgery and was his condition was so poor that a Catholic priest began to administer the sacrament of last rites.
Just months later, Biden had to take a seventh-month leave of absence from the Senate to have a second aneurysm removed before it burst. “They literally had to take the top of my head off,” Biden said of the surgery.
Biden later said he was only given a 50 percent chance of survival from the second surgery, but managed to pull through. Since then, Biden has become infamous for his verbal gaffes and blunders.
In addition, doctors removed a mass from him during a colonoscopy in 1996.
The former vice president had his gallbladder removed in 2003.
In 2008, doctors found he had an irregular heartbeat. He’s on at least three different regular medications.

And last year, Biden was forced by doctors to cancel a campaign event for a fellow Democrat over health concerns.
The former vice president hasn’t released his health records since 2008.
