We often do not spend a bunch of time thinking about our vision and we may even take it for granted. This often happens because we do not have to actively think about our vision for it to work – it just does. Our vision allows us to see the things around us and it allows us to experience the world in a whole new light. Elder care services professionals want to remind you that there are some eye problems that can occur that may limit or eliminate vision in your loved one.
Once a senior has turned 60, there are a number of eye diseases and conditions that can affect them. Sometimes, the symptoms of these conditions and diseases are so faint that the senior will not notice until his or her vision is lost. Elder care services experts recommend that seniors have their eyes checked annually to rule out any possible problems.
Below, our elder care services team will talk about the four most common eye problems that seniors face.
