Care For Aging Eyes

Did you know one in six Americans over the age of 65 have a vision problem that can't be fixed with glasses or contacts?

The American Academy of Ophthalmology celebrates Healthy Aging Month to focus attention on caring for aging eyes.

In many cases, you don't need to sacrifice vision as you age. Early diagnosis and professional treatment is an important step in preserving your vision.

Tips to preserve healthy vision as you age:

  • See an ophthalmologist for a dilated eye exam and ongoing eye care.
  • 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.

Lehmann Eye Center wants you to see well for a lifetime. Protect your vision because Seeing is Believing!
