Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-Related Macular Degeneration | A good thing about age-related macular degeneration is that it doesn’t lead to total blindness, even if not treated. The bad thing is that it can diminish the eyesight of the seniors so much that they’re no longer capable of taking care of ordinary living tasks on their own.

The best way to battle age-related macular degeneration is to do all in your power to prevent it. This goes double for the seniors who have the family history of this condition. When it comes to prevention, it’s all about a healthy lifestyle.

To prevent this condition from occurring, people are advised to embrace the following habits:

  • Eat a diet that’s rich in healthy fats
  • Take vitamin and mineral supplements
  • Exercise regularly
  • Choose walking instead of driving when not in a hurry
  • Say goodbye to smoking and excessive drinking
  • Keep blood pressure levels in check

On top of everything, it’s also important to have your eyes checked on a regular basis. If diagnosed in time, this condition can be slowed down or even reversed. However, if left untreated, age-related macular degeneration can have horrific consequences on the eyesight of the sufferer.

In the cases of severe age-related macular degeneration, the patient is usually incapable of living on their own any longer. This is why many seniors suffering from this condition decide to move into a nursing home. Others ask their family members to help them out.

The problem is that neither of these two solutions is good enough. The best thing you can do for your senior is hired professional home care providers like those from Comfort Keepers. This senior home care agency offers services specially designed for age-related macular degeneration sufferers. With the help of the home care providers, the senior will be able not just to learn how to live with it, but also maybe even reverse its symptoms.
