Vision and eye health in middle-aged people and seniors
At this age, you must remember that the eyes, as the body as a whole, have started to age, and the eye's accommodation is no longer the same as before.
- There may be a need for glasses for reading and proximity work. The process of clouding the natural lens of the eye has started, causing cataracts.
- Be sure to pay close attention to diseases in the family. If parents or grandparents have had retinal diseases, glaucoma, cataracts, pay close attention to your eyes' health.
- If you have had eye surgery, general chronic illness (as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, etc.), visits to the doctor, even in the absence of specific complaints, should be scheduled at least once a year, unless your doctor tells you otherwise.
Possibilities of vision correction at the age of 56+:
glasses, contact lenses, night lenses, intraocular lens implantation.
