Healthy Vision Month is held every May and is a time for Americans to make their eye health a priority and learn steps to protect their vision. Listed below are few things you can do to keep your eyes healthy.
• Get a dilated eye exam
• Live a healthy lifestyle
• Know your family history
• Use protective eyewear
• Wear sunglasses
Unfortunately, no matter how well you take care of your health and your eyes, more often than not, your vision declines as you age. However, seniors with vision problems do not necessarily have to leave the comfort and familiarity of their homes as their vision deteriorates. Remodeling the home can allow for greater accessibility. Start by conducting a home safety assessment with a qualified professional to determine your homes remodeling needs.
