As you age, it is normal to notice changes in your vision. A few common changes for older adults include: * Losing the ability to see up close * Having trouble distinguishing colors, such as blue from black * Needing more time to adjust to changing levels of light These problems are often easily corrected. Glasses, contact lenses, and improved lighting may help and enable you to maintain your lifestyle and independence. Your risk for some eye diseases and conditions increases as you grow older, and some eye changes are more serious. Keep your eyes as healthy as possible by getting regular eye exams so any problems can be spotted early.

EYE SAFETY PREPAREDNESS Knowing what to do for an eye emergency can save valuable time and possibly prevent vision loss. Be Prepared! WEAR eye protection for all hazardous activities and sports at school, home and on the job that could lead to an eye injury. DO stock a first aid kit with a rigid eye shield and commercial eyewash (make sure it is not expired) before engaging in activities where an eye injury could occur. DO NOT assume that any eye injury is harmless. When in doubt, see an eye doctor promptly.
