Approximately 10 percent of people age 40 and over are living with a significant age-related eye condition. Early detection is crucial to managing diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Take these essential steps to stay ahead of dangers to your vision:
- Have an annual dilated eye exam.
- Research your family medical history—many vision diseases are hereditary.
- Don’t ignore warning signs like blurred vision, eye pain, vision loss, or acute sensitivity to light.
Know What Tools Can Help
Along with medication and surgery, there are handheld magnifiers, specialized eyewear, and text-to-speech programs, just to name a few. We can help you find tools and techniques that you probably never thought of.
