Healthy Aging Month – September 2019
- Posted on: Sep 3 2019
One in six Americans age 65 and older have a vision impairment that cannot 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 sight (AAO.org).
Dr. Lu takes extra time with his patients to make every experience personable. Thus, an additional explanation about how to properly use eye drops, follow up care, and/or treatment options is important in eye care! Neglecting any abnormal symptoms or missing appointments only delays bringing medical attention to possible serious eye issues.
