Do you know that vision loss is a leading cause of falls? Join Adrianna Wiseman, O.D., Low Vision Optometrist and Lind Stevens, O.T., Certified Low Vision Therapist, on Saturday, Sept. 24, 10 a.m., for a special community program, “Stand Up to Falls.”
Eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, as well as normal age-related vision changes, can cause vision problems that include: blurring or distortion; glare; difficulty seeing objects, edges, changes in surfaces and at night; and difficulty judging depth and distance. These facts represent a major source of potential disability and can lead to prolonged recoveries and lengthy stays in hospitals and long-term care facilities.
The GOOD NEWS is: Falls can be prevented! View more event details at www.youreyes.org/events/details/380-stand-up-to-falls
