A recent study conducted at the University of Texas found that impaired vision in seniors may speed up their mental decline. While the exact reason for this link is unclear, the researchers believe it has to do with the fact that poor close range vision might limit older adults’ activities and hence contribute to their cognitive decline.

Seniors can help themselves maintain their independence with a free eye exam. By age 65, one in three Americans has some form of vision impairing eye disease. Many people think failing eye sight is a natural part of growing older, but most eye diseases are treatable, especially if caught early.
