As we age we need additional light in order for us to do everyday tasks because your eye’s pupil does not open as widely as it used to allow light to enter. When less light reaches your retina images are no longer as sharp as they once were. There are a couple of suggestions for helping to bring more light to your eyes. You can install task lighting underneath kitchen cabinets or above stoves or anywhere else that will help to brighten up dark corners. Make sure to have regular eye exams with your eye care specialist that include critical tests for older eyes to rule out potentially serious age-related eye diseases that may affect vision quality.
