If you’re suffering from vision loss, whether brought on by age or a stroke, you already know how frightening and difficult this is. If the physical challenges weren’t enough, agerelated vision diseases can also increase your risk and fear of falling. Cataracts and glaucoma alter older people’s depth perception, peripheral vision and sensitivity to glare.
|Healthy Vision Checklist|
|Have you had your eyes tested in the last twelve months? It is important to have your eyes tested annually as physical changes take place in the eyes as we age. Always have someone else drive if the doctor puts drops in your eyes to dilate them during your eye exam.|
|Have you recently changed your eyeglass prescription or received new eye glasses? When wearing new eyewear, take care walking at first, especially on stairs. New bifocals and trifocals sometimes require a period of adjustment.|
