Vision Loss

Ways to reduce your risk

(HealthDayNews) -- By the time you're 65 years old, your chances of suffering some kind of significant, uncorrectable vision loss are one in nine, according to The Canadian National Institute for the Blind.

Here's how you can reduce your risk:

  • Have regular eye examinations, especially after age 40. Early diagnosis is paramount for preventing further vision loss.
  • Follow your eye care specialist's directions for taking prescribed medications.
  • Report any sudden or unusual changes in your vision to your eye doctor immediately.
