Do you think about eye health?
There’s more than meets the eye...

We live in an age where our general health is given more consideration than ever before

Our weight, what we eat and how we choose to lead our lifestyle are all important factors to this as they can benefit our overall health.

But have you ever considered the benefit that these factors can have on your eye health?

There are a number of eye conditions that we’ve recently taken a closer look at including glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy, all of which limit an individual’s ability to see better and live better.

While macular degeneration and cataracts are age-related conditions, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy can be managed if not prevented through improved lifestyle choices.

Vision is a key sense in helping us navigate and engage with the world around us, so we should try to keep our eyes in the best possible condition.

We often think that because our sight is fine, the health of our eyes will be too.

Regular sight tests at all stages of life are vital to making this a reality.

Poor eye health can be linked with depression, isolation and can result in poor vision which can restrict an individual from enjoying their life as they usually would.

For someone living in care and without the means to help themselves, they rely on the essential services from the person in charge of delivering care.

By considering eye health to be as important as our general health we can help identify, monitor and preserve the eye health of those requiring a little extra care.

Monitoring and preservation of eye health can reduce the risk of sight loss due to certain eye conditions.

So, caring for our eyes with a regular sight test can help us to see better and live better for longer.
