Age Cymru quote on falls and deteriorating eye sight - 20 Sept 2021

Published on 21 October 2021 10:07 PM

Age Cymru’s chief executive, Victoria Lloyd says: “Deteriorating eye sight is one main causes of falls amongst older people. Failing eye sight can make it more difficult for older people to detect, for example, the depth of a step or any contrasts in services such as walking from a dry surface to a wet one.  It can also make it more difficult to spot potential trip hazards such as broken paving slabs.  I would therefore, urge older people across Powys to arrange regular eye check-ups and reduce the risk of falling.”
