As reported in the 28 July 2016 issue of “HealthDay News”, those persons with visual problems are at higher risk of poverty, unemployment and even mental health problems. The study evaluated over 112,000 people in the United Kingdom in an even cross-section of society and sex representations.
There may be a direct effect whereby untreated reductions in vision inhibit climbing the societal ladder to success later. Also, there may be an implication that those persons with vision problems may become unemployed and subsequently develop mental health disorders as a result of their poor vision.
What should be done? Simple: Get in for your regular eye exam and see us at the first sign of trouble!
I look forward to personally caring for you.
