Why You Should Take Good Care of Your Eyes!
As you get older, vision problems may arise as the tissues and normal drainage apparatus in your eyes become less efficient. At age 50 or so, you may start experiencing problems in close-up vision, such as having difficulty in threading a needle. These unwelcome changes in your eyes do not happen overnight; they take years to develop. Of course, you can solve these vision problems with corrective lenses. But more serious age-related eye problems may result in vision loss or distortion, such as seeing things in a blur, in double, or through a haze. Poor vision compromises the quality of life, especially among seniors. Approximately, 20 percent of the elderly at the age of 65 experience some vision impairment that affects their quality of life.
It is of paramount importance that you should heal your eyes, and protect your vision. According to research studies, many cases of blindness could have been averted with preventive care and early diagnosis. Unfortunately, many have erroneously believed that their vision impairment is a part of the process of getting old. Indeed, many eye disorders can be reversed or prevented from progressing with early diagnosis, and bad eye conditions can be significantly improved through exercise, diet, and correction of bad vision habits. Surprisingly, you can even improve your eyesight to the extent that you can do without your glasses. As far as your vision improvement is concerned, the sky is the limit. Even eye diseases, such as cataract, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration, can be controlled if not cured.
Your eyes are one of the most important organs of your body. Take good care of them, and they will take good care of your senior years.
