It’s such a delight to be out and about on my home visits when spring is beginning. A beautiful white flowered magnolia took my breath away in Giffnock yesterday. And all the pink cherry blossom right throughout Glasgow is so lovely.
But how can we keep a spring in our step as the days get longer?
The older we get the more risk there is of falling. But how much does this have to do with vision? Our eyes naturally lose their clarity as the clear structures within our eyes get older and this can affect contrast and distance judging.
Keeping your glasses prescription up to date is important. And if you have already had a fall or been told you are at risk of falls it is worth considering a change from bifocals or varifocals back to single vision glasses. Even when you are used to multifocal glasses, you might be increasing your falls risk by wearing them.
For more information or to find out if you qualify for a visit from a home visiting optician call 0141 611 9696.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
