Eye Health Resources
Good eyesight is an important part of wellbeing and a significant factor in retaining independence and quality of life as we get older. Contrary to popular belief, loss of vision does not need to be an accepted consequence of ageing. Vision can deteriorate for many reasons and, even when associated with the ageing process, many interventions are available. The World Health Organization estimates that up to 80 percent of blindness and serious visual loss around the world is avoidable through prevention or treatment. Having your eyes tested for vision and general eye health can help identify problems early and prevent loss of eyesight.
