A Real Eye Opener: 270,000 Falls Were Caused By This
It improves from birth until we reach our 20’s. After that, our vision stays fairly stable, typically up to the age of 45, when in most cases it begins to steadily decline.
Besides the well-known inconvenience of wearing glasses for reading, driving, watching TV, and other daily activities, a large number of studies show that impaired vision is a major cause of falls, many with serious injuries, including the much dreaded hip fracture.
Since impaired vision is associated with a greater difficulty in achieving balance, it is not surprising that a recent study published in the journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology reports that those with central vision impairment (CVI) and peripheral vision impairment (PVI) had almost three times the risk of falling than those with good eyesight.1 The study also found a proportional relationship between the increased risk of falling with injuries and the severity of CVI and PVI.1
In the UK, vision problems played an important role in the 270,000 falls that happened to people older than 60 in a span of two years.2 This according to The Falls Omnibus Survey which was concluded in 2011.
Preventing Falls is Easy… if You Take Action
But enough about the bad news. The good news is that there are natural solutions to solve the age-related vision problem. Dr. Mark Rosenberg, M.D. a practicing physician for over 18 years who specializes in anti-aging, has found just the right combination of powerful natural ingredients to help improve eyesight.
So if you’d like to turn the clock back and:
- Prevent falls that could lead to fractures
- Drive confidently at night
- Read books and work on your computer with ease
- Enjoy your favorite hobbies
I recommend you read the information here and take advantage of Dr. Rosenberg’s special offer.
Improve Your Vision Health in 60 Days or Less
Our eyes play a huge role in the quality of life we can achieve, especially if we wish to be active and self-reliant. As author Marcel Proust wrote in his book In Search of Lost Time,
“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
And who doesn’t want “new eyes”, especially if it’s easy to achieve in a safe, quick, and all-natural way?
