Vision and Aging
What is the
See Well for a Lifetime Program?
See Well for a Lifetime is an educational series designed to help educate older adults about eye health. As people age, they are increased risk for eye diseases and conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataract, glaucoma, dry eye and low vision. Many diseases have no symptoms in their early stages, but can be detected early through a comprehensive dilated eye exam. Early detection and treatment can help prevent vision loss.
See Well for a Lifetime Toolkit
The See Well for a Lifetime Toolkit is for anyone who works with older adults in community-based settings to convey science-based, easy-to-understand information about eye health, age-related eye diseases and conditions, comprehensive dilated eye exams and how people can protect their sight as they age.
The Toolkit comprises three modules that can be used for individual educational sessions or build on each other as a series. Each contains a PowerPoint presentation, a Speaker's Guide, participant handouts, a promotional announcement, and participant evaluation forms. Learn about tips for using the Toolkit.
