September is Healthy Aging Month
Did you know that 1 in 6 Americans aged 65 and older will suffer from vision impairment that cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses? For this reason it is crucially important that patients in this age range see an ophthalmologist yearly for their eye health. This makes September officially, Healthy Aging Awareness month!
As you age, you are more likely to develop age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, dry eye and lowered vision. The main key in detecting these eye-related illnesses is early detection, and the only way to do this is to see and eye care professional (such as an optometrist or ophthalmologist) regularly.
The good news! Horizon Eye Care is a comprehensive eye care facility that incorporates various methods of prevention and treatments for these eye-related illnesses to ensure your best vision for years to come! Remember to take care of your eyes this September, and lower your chances of developing aging-eye-related diseases.
