Is congenital heart disease correlated with age? Are older people more at risk with congenital heart disease, if so, how can it be prevented?

No. I think this is a definition issue. Congenital means "from birth", and most congenital issues are caught nearer to birth, especially major ones that either cause blue lips and gums, or failure to grow properly. Sometimes an issue like a small hole between chambers of the heart goes undetected, and is found later on a cardiac work up for other reasons. But issues like that start from birth.
No. Congenital means "present at birth". So an adult cannot "develop" a congenital heart defect.
Congenital . Congenital heart disease is a broad category that includes all heart conditions that are present at birth. Some are quite minor, but others are very complicated and associated with very high risk throughout life. Generally, cardiovascular conditions are associated with increasing risk as people age and this is also true of the congenital heart conditions. Also keep in mind that people with congenital heart disease are also at risk for acquired heart conditions like coronary artery disease. In the modern era, it is increasingly common for people with complicated congenital heart disease to live long and full lives. The best thing to do to prevent problems later in life is to see an expert in the care of adults with congenital heart disease. These experts are typically located at large referral centers, such as university hospitals.

Is congenital heart disease a disease associated with aging?

Not specificly. The sporadic occurrence of congenital heart disease in a baby is influenced by many factors including heredity & toxic exposure. Maternal /paternal age at conception does not seem to have a direct influence unless a chromosome defect comes into play. Then advanced maternal age increases risk of trisomy & each chromosome defect has a higher risk of a heart defect. Read more...

Could you suggest treatment for congenital heart disease with atrial septial defect for a man aged 39?

Depending on size. Treatment of (ASD) is dependent on its size, whether there is significant flow across it, and the location within the atrial septum. If it's a significant defect then treatment is either surgical with open heart surgery, or transcatheter device closure if the defect meets the required criteria. If it's a small defect with no right heart chamber dilatation then typically no treatment is needed. Read more...

My two year old was born w/ congenital heart disease. He's been rolling his eyes back abnormally at random. Like its uncontrollable. Is this normal!?

Unrelated. I can think of no process that puts the two issues together. CHD is a rather common birth condition and includes a number of abnormalities. The eye rolling suggests something involving the brains control of the eye muscles, a totally separate part of the body. You need to see the kids doc and have them sort this out. Read more...
See your doctor. Eye rolling could be a form of seizure. Probably unrelated to the heart, but it needs to be evaluated. If possible, try to get an episode of the eye rolling on video so the doctor can see what is going on. Read more...
