EYECARE IN LATER LIFE - A regular eye examination is important at all stages of our lives.


The eye examination can help to detect many eye problems which are perfectly treatable . You should have an eye examination at least every two years .


A healthy diet can help to avoid some effects of ageing to our eyes .


It makes sense to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables each day . Leafy green vegetables like kale , spinach , broccoli and peas are excellent nutritionally . Oily fish is a good foodstuff also .


Smoking: Smokers triple their risk of the eye condition "age relate macular degeneration" . So it is certainly better not to smoke .
