Elderly and Eyes

It’s important to be pro-active in looking after your eyes, and it’s especially important for the elderly to do so.

I write about this at the AARP website where I outline 6 steps to save your sight.

Patching Though

In the battle to increase awareness of serious eye issues, I’ve now started contributing at Patch.com

I have already done 2 pieces there.

The first is a recap of the time Kristi Krueger came to our offices and did a report for the WPLG Local 10 News.

The second piece is on the work we do with Light of the World.

Important for us to give back to the community, especially to those who need it the most.

Looking forward to contributing more and increasing awareness of the serious eye issues facing people.

So what can you do to prevent eye surgery?

Whenever you are doing any serious physical activity, wear safety goggles.

If you are going to participate in pursuits such as paintball and boxing, eye protection is mandatory.

Walking around in the sunshine is a lovely and wonderful thing to do but the eyes are exposed to the bright sunlight. So whether you are walking around or driving, wear sunglasses.
