Our early years of life have given us healthy vision and eyesight, which is something that is easy to take for granted. Similar to many other health issues, our eyes are subject to various changes over time. It is important to be aware of your family history and continue to care for your vision so you can maintain the vision of your youth.
Under the age of 40, healthy lifestyle habits and changes are essential building blocks for good vision as you age. After 40, most people experience a decrease in close-up vision. After 60, you may see more noticeable signs of aging such as cloudy vision, needing more light to see, and difficulty driving at night. In addition, you are more susceptible to eye and health problems that may diminish your vision.
The good news is that eye health can be maintained and preserved throughout your lifetime. Make sure you know how to take care of your aging eyes throughout all stages of life with regular examinations and guidance from your holistic optometrist.
