Patients Living with Glaucoma? How to Safeguard their Vision?

glaucoma treatments

60 million people worldwide suffer from glaucoma. In some cases, glaucoma can lead to irreversible blindness. However, lifestyle changes and medication can reduce the probability.

Adhere to Medications

To treat your glaucoma, you may need to take a number of eye drops during the day. Maintain a routine for the correct dose to be administered on time. Set alarms and reminders on devices you keep close, such as your mobile phone. If you have any issues with your drugs and dosages, make sure to inform your doctor. The single most important thing a glaucoma patient can do to prevent their vision from deteriorating is strict adherence to medication.

Avoid Falls and Accidents

Because of loss of side vision, glaucoma can increase the risk of falling and accidents in some patients. It is important that boundaries are clearly defined in your home. By using bright or contrasting colored tape or paint in areas such as doorways, drawers, counters, and table edges, they can be recognized. Organize frequently used cutlery and appliances in areas where they are easy to access.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

As well as the rest of the body, exercise will improve the health of the eye. It can be very helpful to exercise multiple days a week, but be sure to consult your doctor about your exercise schedule. Avoid exercises that cause your head to be under your core or to lift very heavyweights.
