Sports eye safety is no joke. That’s why, even when scores of professional athletes are getting eye surgeries like LASIK so that they can take the field with perfect vision, old-fashioned eyeglasses are a common sight in the world of sports.
If you’re considering having cataract surgery at Eye Centers of Florida’s Accredited SurgiCare Center, you’ve likely done some research already. That means you may already know that for many people who have their cataracts removed and replaced with intraocular lenses (IOLs), it’s still necessary to wear some type of eyewear to see clearly.
Many people underestimate how important it is to practice proper eye safety until it’s too late. In fact, over 2,000 people injure their eyes at work every day, and 10-20 percent of those injuries cause temporary or permanent vision loss.
At Eye Centers of Florida, we want to be your lifelong partner in eye care, and we’re committed to improving your quality of life through better vision.
When you reach your 40s, the natural lenses in your eyes become less flexible, meaning that they can’t focus as easily when transitioning between near and far vision. This causes your near vision to get worse, called presbyopia, or age-related farsightedness.
Growing older isn’t a bad thing. With age can come knowledge, grandchildren, and more time to spend your days pursuing your dreams. If you’re 60 or over, you have a lot to look forward to, and the last thing you want is for eye problems to hold you back from accomplishing your goals.
