July is Healthy Vision Month
It’s not uncommon for seniors to experience vision loss. Sadly, these changes can cause both physical and emotional hardships. They may feel a loss of independence, an inability to do the things they love and a disconnect from the world around them. Beyond these discomforts, with the loss of vision, they may experience cognitive decline. Thus, healthy vision is crucial to a senior’s well being.
Studies have found a relationship between vision loss and cognitive decline. As such, loss of vision can drive poor cognitive function. However, cognitive decline associated with poor vision can be improved if you treat the vision problems. Regular visits with your ophthalmologist can lead to improvement and help prevent deterioration.
