Effects of Vision Education Classes on the Well-being of Older Adults with Macular Degeneration


Older adults with vision impairment are at increased risk for falls and hospitalizations; they find it more difficult to take their medications properly, and are more likely to be socially isolated. They are often poorly informed about their eye condition and the services and devices that help maintain functioning. Attending vision education classes may improve well-being for older patients with Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
