COLUMBUS Ohio Department of Aging has proclaimed April as Protect Ohio's Aging Eyes Month to raise awareness of age-related eye diseases and the impacts it has on individuals' quality of life and ability to live independently. The department joins Ohio's Aging Eye Public Private Partnership in urging all Ohioans older than age 40 to begin talking with their eye care professionals about age-related eye diseases and making lifestyle changes to reduce their risk.
Age-related eye diseases include macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. About 13.7 percent of Ohioans age 65 and older are affected, and that rate is expected to double by 2030. Most of these conditions do not exhibit any initial symptoms before vision loss occurs. In most cases, vision lost cannot be recovered.
