4 Simple Steps to Prevent Falling

Want to Prevent Falling? Have Your Vision Checked Regularly
Vision problems can increase your chances of falling.

  • You may be wearing the wrong glasses, or have a condition such as glaucoma or cataracts that causes vision problems or limits your vision.
  • To reduce your risk of falling, have your vision checked by an eye doctor every year for early detection and correction of vision problems. If you can’t see something, it’s harder to avoid it, and this increases your risk of falling.
