Prince George Senior Health | August 15, 2023
Are you aware that glaucoma poses a serious risk to seniors? Studies have shown that catching it early and receiving prompt treatment before significant vision loss occurs is the best defence against this sneaky disease. This means we all need to be vigilant about our eye health!
One of the most crucial steps in preventing glaucoma from wreaking havoc on your eyes is regular eye examinations through dilated pupils by a trusted eye care professional. If you’re over 40 years old, have an exam every two to four years. But hold on! Once you hit 55, it’s essential to step up your game and make it an annual check-up. Remember, early detection is key!
Glaucoma doesn’t discriminate, and for those over the age of 50 with a family history of the disease, annual eye exams are a must. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to stay proactive in preserving your precious eyesight. Don’t let glaucoma catch you off guard!
Remember, when it comes to glaucoma, prevention and early intervention are key. At Comfort Keepers – Prince George, our caregivers can help make vision health a priority by providing transportation to important appointments, preparing nutritious meals, and encouraging clients to take their medications.
