Preserving Your Precious Vision is Possible

Research shows that when asked which of our five senses is most important most people say vision is the most valuable.  Older adults may face some challenges when it comes to maintaining good eyesight.  But there are many actions available to preserve precious eyesight including regular eye exams.

Dr. Jessica Schuman, owner of Mile High Senior Eye Care, will discuss protecting vision at the Seniors’ Council of Douglas County meeting on Thursday, March 7 from 10-11:30 am at MorningStar Senior Living in Parker located at 18900 Mainstreet.  This meeting is free and open to the public.

Knowing warning signs to look for as our vision changes with age and when to seek care can help ensure our best eye health possible. Dr. Schuman was raised closely with her grandparents and witnessed firsthand the difficulties that older people may have when it comes to managing their health and well-being. Addressing the unmet need for geriatric eyecare is the purpose and drive behind Dr. Schuman’s completely mobile eye care practice.
