Protecting the gift of sight while improving quality of life and resident satisfaction
Our eyes are the window through which we see the world. But as we get older, the risk of developing Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD) threatens to cloudy that window. According to the CDC, AMD is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in those age 65 or older.1 As that age demographic continues to grow in the US, the number of cases of AMD is expected to double.
To mitigate the physical and financial impact on your residents and their families, SNF and LTC administrators need to implement a proactive, comprehensive vision care plan to help protect the precious gift of sight.
