It is no surprise that we often take our vision for granted and this is because we naturally have our vision and we do not have to do anything to receive it. Our vision provides us with the opportunity to see the things around us and pay attention to what is going on in our life and the life of those we love. But, if our 24 hour home care experts asked you if you knew about some of the common eye problems that seniors face, would you know? For many seniors, when you talk about vision problems, they become worried and start to panic. Below, our 24 hour home care experts will talk about what some of those common eye problems are, so you and your loved one can be better prepared.
Seniors who are 60 and older should have their eyes checked by a licensed optometrist at least once per year. This way, any issues can be detected and treated early on. Let’s take a look at the four most common diseases and conditions.
24 hour home care is offered at Comfort Keepers and our team can work with your senior even if he or she suffers from vision diseases or conditions. Call our office today to learn more.
