January is National Eye Care Month

January 22, 2018

Everyone should remember to get eye exams regularly, but they are especially important for Elders. January is National Eye Care Month and a good time to recognize the importance of eye health.

Why are eye exams essential for Elders?

As we age, eye exams become even more important. Vision problems may develop with no physical symptoms until they’re quite advanced.

See your provider to screen for early stages in:

  • Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Refractive errors

Scheduling an annual eye exam is a way to prevent injury and improve overall health in our Elders! Protect our Elders against potentially debilitating vision loss.
