Rolling Hills Home Care: Glaucoma, the Silent Eye Disease

a-1 domestic california alzheimer's careGlaucoma sneaks up on you after stealing your vision long before you notice any symptoms.  Caused by damage to the optic nerve, glaucoma reduces up to 40% of a person’s vision beginning with the peripheral vision.  Risk factors for glaucoma include neurological disorders, infections, malnutrition, and toxins such as alcohol and tobacco.  Bad lifestyle habits can also destroy your eyesight.  Staring at your smartphone for prolonged periods of time can strain your eyes, causing blurred vision, nausea and dry eyes.  Reading in dim light or looking at a bright screen in a dark room (such as watching TV before bedtime or staring at your smartphone with the lights off) causes eye strain or headaches.  If you have an elderly loved one at home who can’t see well, prevent accidents by calling on A-1 Home Care in Rolling Hills for in-home assistance.

An epidemic of blindness caused by glaucoma strikes over 2.2 million Americans.  It’s easy to let poor vision slide and chalk it up to old age, but you can prevent glaucoma with regular visits to the optometrist.  Are you too busy at work to take your elderly loved one to get a visual field test?  Leave it to A-1 Home Care to do the work for you.  Our caregivers will give your loved one a lift anywhere in or around Rolling Hills for all medical and dental visits, including optometric visits.  Your loved one shouldn’t have to strain his eyes to read prescription bottles and risk taking the wrong medication, either.  Our live-in and live-out caregivers will administer the proper medications as needed, and you can rest assured that everything else will be taken care of as well, such as light housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, chores, and personal hygiene.
