Saving The Sight of Seniors

Ageing of the eye is normal for older adults, but this doesn’t mean that vision loss and blindness is a normal part of ageing. You can save your sight if you check your vision regularly to detect and treat common age-related eye diseases. Dr V. Ulagantheran Viswanathan, Consultant Ophthalmologist and Vitreo Retinal Surgeon from Subang Jaya Medical Centre explains the signs, symptoms and screening tests that all older adults should keep their eye on.
