WOMEN’S EYE HEALTH AND SAFETY MONTH

Did you know that blindness affects women more than men? The National Institutes of Health reports that 2/3rds of the people with blindness or visual impairments are women.
Often, hormones, and especially life changes such as pregnancy and menopause, cause changes in women’s eyes.
Preventing blindness and vision problems requires keeping a healthy lifestyle, avoiding certain habits, and seeing the eye doctor regularly.

The National Eye Institute also stated that women deal with greater instances of eye disorders, in part, because they tend to live longer than men, are more likely to undergo cancer treatments which affect vision, and experience age-related hormonal changes that can affect the eyes.
Women also have higher rates of eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration than men.
Life changes such as pregnancy and menopause, cause changes in women’s eyes.
