Senior Home Care Benefits For Glaucoma Patients
Glaucoma refers to high eye pressure, also known as intraocular pressure. Open-angle glaucoma can lead to vision problems, however, closed-angle glaucoma can also cause severe eye pain, headache, nausea, and vomiting. If your elderly family member has glaucoma and lives by themselves, they may benefit from the following interventions that a senior home care provider can offer. Eye Drop Instillation Beta-blocker eye drops are prescribed for people with glaucoma. They need to be instilled every day and if they are instilled improperly or if the person forgets to use their eye drops, their intraocular pressure may spike, putting their vision at risk.
