WHAT WOULD POOR VISION STOP YOU FROM DOING?
STAYING INDEPENDENT, ACTIVE, AND INVOLVED IN LIFE
Is keeping active and independent a high priority for you?
Truth is, for those of us over 50 years of age, we are much more likely to have our eyesight affected by cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, or just to rely on glasses for clear vision.
If you had to write down 3 things that you would fear living without, would vision be one of them? You wouldn’t be alone, just about everyone has “good vision” on their list.
Take a moment. What would poor vision stop you from doing?
Would it cause you to stop driving? Or prevent you reading, watching TV or seeing your loved ones clearly?
Would you have to give up your favourite pastime…bowling, golf, walking…which in turn would cause you to miss out on the social side with your friends?
Could it interfere with your confidence in driving friends or maybe grandchildren in your car? Or helping them with their homework? Could it stop you travelling the world, like you always planned to do?
But do you have to just wait for these health problems to overrun you?
Of course not! Pro-active people take preventative steps to do all they can to avoid or reduce the effects of common eyesight problems. They make sure they have their eyes examined when advised to do so by their eyecare professional - it’s really that simple.
How will having an eye exam help?
An eye exam evaluates the current condition of your eye health. You will be given personalised advice on how to minimise your risk of problems developing. Then we can do battle with any issues that you do have, to reduce or stop the effect that they could have on your lifestyle over the coming years.
Why worry with uncertainty about your eyesight in the future?
Having your eyes examined at regular intervals is one of the best ways to keep your independence and to stay active and involved in life.
Think about it, just about everything you do relies on good vision. Don’t have any regrets, look after it!
To your health and independence,
