World Elder’s Day Celebrated
Speaking at public seminar, Dr Vidushi Sharma, Director of SuVi Eye Institute, mentioned that age-related cataract remains the commonest cause of visual impairment in the elderly people. Other important causes of visual impairment are glaucoma, retinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration. It is possible to delay formation of cataract by eating nutritious diet, protection from harmful sun (UV) rays by using protective glasses. Dr Suresh Pandey mentioned that elderly people should undergo regular eye check up for detection of glaucoma (increase intraocular pressure). Diabetic patients should undergo regular retinal examination to detect diabetic retinopathy.
