Schedule an eye exam for your loved one.HEALTH & MEDICAL
What You Should Know
For the elderly, vision is more important than you might realize. Cognition is improved with good vision. Dementia gets worse with poor vision. When you combine vision loss with hearing loss, cognition gets even worse. Also, older people who have better vision fall less often and have lower risk of hip fractures.
Throughout life, eyesight keeps changing. The glasses or contacts your loved one received five years ago may no longer serve their needs. On top of evolving corrective needs, the elderly face such serious issues as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Medications can also affect vision. So it's vitally important that seniors get an annual eye exam.
Steps To Take
- Get your loved one's eyes and corrective lenses tested now.
- Make sure they get an eye test every year.
