Older Eyes More Likely To Develop Age-related Macular Degeneration

Eye Disease Increases with age

As you age, your eyes are more susceptible disease and illness. The AAOA, American Academy of Ophthalmology  warns that as you age you should be more aware of both your eye health and your overall health. Diet and exercise are key and routine eye exams are part of the routine to prevent age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in seniors.

Make sure you are getting plenty of exercise and your diet is high in omega-3s and low in cholesterol and saturated fats. Also, make sure you're having yearly eye exams, so our team at Gordy EyeCare can help you stay on top of your vision as you age.
