VISION, one of the 5 crucial senses is one of the earliest to be affected by age.It can interfere with safety and ability to understand the surrounding specially when outdoors.It therefore has a huge impact on self confidence and independence!!
VISION is dependent on a lot of other factors. The tears, the lens, the muscles and the retina and many other parameters work in perfect harmony for us to see clearly.
As we age, Hormonal changes, Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Thyroid, Heart disease, etc start to show up. Lifestyles, dietary habits and the medications you are on add their influence. The work atmosphere and the environment affects how we adjust.
