Healthy Aging Awareness Month at Slade & Baker Vision
- Posted on: Sep 14 2020
September has been named “Healthy Aging Month” and like many other disease types, our risk of suffering from an eye disease increases with our age; but did you know that many adults aged 65 years and older neglect to go see an ophthalmologist?
Did you know that one in every six Americans who are 65 years old and older have a vision impairment that cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses?
The American Academy of Ophthalmology celebrates Healthy Aging Month in order to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of vision loss and the importance of taking care of our eyes when we age.
Our team is joining the AAO to share steps to help seniors properly take care of their sight.
Other than being the first practice to be involved in Laser Vision Correction procedures, did you know Slade & Baker vision was the FIRST practice to debut Laser Cataract Surgery in the United States?
Our doctors are more than happy to help you if you are exhibiting any symptoms of either of these eye diseases or if you have a loved one who is. If you are experiencing cloudy vision, blurry vision or if you feel that you have recently lost any vision, it is best to schedule an eye exam to rule out any eye disease and take care of your vision before it is too late. The sooner we can take a look at what is going on, the better chances that medications or procedures can help you prevent any further vision loss.
