September is Healthy Aging Month

You don't need to sacrifice vision as you age. Lehmann Eye Center wants you to see well for a lifetime.  

If you aren't experiencing symptoms of poor vision, it's still important to visiting an eye care professional regularly for a comprehensive dilated eye exam. Age-related eye diseases often have no symptoms.

An experienced eye care professional can detect eye diseases when pupils are dilated, usually in an early stage before vision loss might occur. Early signs of age-related macular degeneration, cataract, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma can be discovered through this preventative exam.

Early diagnosis and treatment is an important step in preserving your vision.

Additional ways to maintain healthy vision as you age:

  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet, packed with dark, leafy greens and fish high in omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Maintain a healthy weight to avoid risks associated with diabetes.
  • Don’t smoke. Smoking increases your risk for eye diseases and conditions that can damage the optic nerve.
  • Protecting your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. when you are outdoors is vital for your eye health. Choose sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation.

Protect your vision because Seeing is Believing!
