September is Healthy Aging Month

Low vision can be a result of eye diseases, injuries, or both. As we age, we are at increased risk for eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts, which can lead to low vision and impact our ability to perform daily activities and enjoy leisure pursuits.

In addition to regular eye exams, the following lifestyle habits support eye health:

  • A balanced diet that includes dark, leafy greens and fish high in omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Maintaining a healthy weight and regular exercise.

  • Getting enough sleep to properly rest the eyes.

  • Wearing sunglasses or a brimmed hat outdoors.

  • Using protective eyewear during activities such as sports and construction work.
