Vision Matters: Prevent Falls and Enhance Lives with Premium Cataract Surgery at East Florida Eye In


When it comes to aging gracefully and maintaining an active lifestyle, clear vision plays a pivotal role. At East Florida Eye Institute (EFEI), we understand that poor vision can impair balance and increase the risk of falls and fractures in older individuals. We also recognize the limitations of traditional eyewear solutions, such as multifocal glasses. This blog post focuses on the critical connection between vision and falls, highlights the potential risks of multifocal glasses, and underscores how our premium cataract surgery, led by Dr. Ronald Frenkel, can change lives.

The Impact of Vision on Falls

Researchers, including Stephen R. Lord, Stuart T. Smith, and Jasmine C. Menant, have revealed the profound impact of poor vision on balance and the increased risk of falls among older people. Impaired contrast sensitivity, reduced depth perception, and difficulty navigating obstacles can all result from poor vision, creating a hazardous environment for seniors.

Multifocal Glasses: A Hidden Risk

While multifocal glasses have been a conventional solution for age-related vision issues, they aren't without drawbacks. Studies have shown that multifocal glasses can unintentionally exacerbate the risk of falls. They impair vital visual functions, including contrast sensitivity and depth perception. What's more concerning is that vision assessments and new spectacles may not always alleviate these risks—in some cases, they may even worsen them.
