Did you know that more women are blind or visually impaired than men are? It's true. Nearly two-thirds of all visually impaired and blind people in the world are women. Some of the reasons behind this statistic include: women live longer, making them more prone to age-related eyesight problems; hormonal changes due to pregnancy, birth control pills and menopause; and other social, economical and behavioral factors.
Although women face various different vision problems, some of the most common eye conditions include cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and diabetic retinopathy.
The best way to treat any eye condition is to catch it early when it will respond best to treatment. Annual eye examinations are crucial for preventative eye health regardless of your age or environment. Contact VAL-Uvision for an appointment at one of our Jacksonville area offices.
