Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities. This can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. According to a new study, older people with strabismus, where one eye points slightly inward or outward affecting vision, are about 27 percent more likely than people without the condition to be injured by a fall.
Vision Therapy and prescribing prism can help people of all ages, especially older adults who have a higher risk of developing “wandering eye”.
