A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens which blocks or changes the passage of light into the eye. Unlike many eye diseases, however, vision loss due to cataract can be restored.
Lately I have been working with patients who are experiencing vision impairments which then leads to limitations with the performance of daily activities.The little known fact is that in most cases they are living with vision impairments without medical follow up.
Did you know that Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States and has a 95% success rate? Also, a new study found that cataract surgery patients had a significantly reduced rate of hip fractures from falls.
Vision impairments can be very debilitating and life long without appropriate medical intervention and modifications to function safely in the home and or community environment.To learn more about functioning safely with vision impairments schedule a FREE 15 minute consultation with us today at www.gracefulinhomeaging.biz
