September is Healthy Aging Month
September is Healthy Aging Month! One in six Americans age 65 and older have a vision impairment that can not be corrected with glasses or contact lenses. The risk of eye disease increases with age, yet many older adults neglect to see an ophthalmologist for care. To bring attention to taking care of our eyes as we age, the American Academy of Ophthalmology celebrates Healthy Aging Month to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of vision loss - and steps to help seniors take care of their eyesight. We encourage our patients to have an annual eye exam. Call us today to schedule your appointment at one of our three convenient locations! We look forward to seeing you!
