What Every Senior in Victoria, BC Needs to Know About Senior Eye Health

Eye Health in Senior Years | While some issues with eye health are not uncommon in senior years, it is important not to ignore any problems and to get regular vision tests, at least once a year. In addition to getting regular eye checkups and following doctor’s recommendations and treatment plans, older adults can also make simple lifestyle changes to maintain good eye health:

  1. Proper nutrition – Eating a healthy diet is important for a variety of health reasons and eye health is one of them. The good news is that your loved one can enjoy tasty foods like eggs, sweet potatoes, almonds, salmon, and organs, all of which improve eye health.
  2. Regular exercise – Physical activity boosts overall health, and eye health including. Just make sure to speak with a physician before your loved one starts a new exercise regimen.
  3. Eye trauma prevention – Injuries can lead to deteriorating eye health, so your loved one must pay special attention when engaging in activities that may cause eye trauma. When needed, they should wear protective eyewear. Additional preventative measures include reducing the risk of falls and being extra careful when using sharp objects or dealing with chemicals.
  4. Smart computer use – Regular computer use can contribute to problems like eye irritation, blurriness or seeing double. To prevent these issues from developing, your loved one should take frequent breaks and wear corrective eyewear when using the computer. It is also a good idea to improve lighting in the room where they use the computer.
  5. Resolving other health problems – Decreasing eye health can be a sign of an underlying condition so your loved one should check their overall health regularly and also discuss possible medication side effects with their medical team.
  6. Wearing sunglasses – Your loved one should wear quality eyeglasses whenever it is sunny outside.
  7. Quality sleep – Getting 7-8 hours of sleep per night is important for eye health too!
  8. Vision checkups – Seniors can experience sudden changes to eye health so they should get their vision examined once a year.
