Promoting Eye Health in Older People

Jan 27, 09:00 AM
As we get older, our eyesight can change.  1.2 million people over the age of 75 live with sight loss.  In many cases deterioration in vision develops gradually.  Early intervention is very important to maintain good eye health. 
In this podcast June and Iain from RNIB's Older People and Complex Needs Team discuss the importance of regular eye health checks, and why eye health care is for everyone.  If a person is registered partially-sighted, regular checks are still important.
