Keep an Eye on Your Vision
It’s a common sight everywhere: baby boomers extending their arms and straining to read menus and newspapers. While this may be a normal part of aging, other more serious eye diseases often occur as we age; many without noticeable symptoms.
Undetected vision problems often lead to a loss of independence, preventing people from engaging in their favorite hobbies, reading and even performing chores around the house.
Make sure to talk to your eye care professional if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Cloudy or blurry vision
- Colors that seem faded
- Bright spots
- Poor night vision
- Double or multiple vision
- Loss of peripheral vision
Many forms of vision loss are preventable if caught early. Keeping yourself in good health and taking necessary precautions to care for your eyes will go a long way. A regular eye examination will help you detect possible eye diseases and prevent blindness.
