I am Rick Ferrante from Home Care Services and we are joined today by Doctor Daniel Sjolund of Sunshine Optometry.
So often medical and related issues are determined not by a the person dealing with those issues themselves but by others around them. In the case of a senior who is being assisted at home by a family caregiver, that caregiver he is often the the one who sees the symptoms of an issue first.
In many cases symptoms can occur over a long period of time and because of that they’re not readily noticeable by the person who is experiencing them. And elder, can possibly also have cognitive issues that prevent them from identifying conditions early enough or not addressing them at all.
Home Care Services in Santa Clarita want to make sure that the community knows and understands that there are resources out there to assist caregivers and people assisting seniors in their homes. One of those resources it is Sunshine Optometry. We talked to Dr. Daniel of Sunshine Optometry about some of the things a person should look for when caring for a senior that might be an indication of an a eyesight problem.

And here is what Dr. Daniel had to say.
So someone is rubbing their eyes a lot, that could be an indication of dryness and a potential problem in terms of the oil glands in their eyes. There could be seasonal allergies and in some cases infections that we can certainly prescribed medication for. Redness in the eyes can be another big factor.
If the senior or someone that you are caring for if their eyes are constantly read or watering there are a wide variety of things that we can do in terms of treating that. The critical factor in his not waiting too long when there are minor irritants are issues because those could be significant or even just because it can be treated.
This is a quality of life issue as well as a safety issue and should not be ignored.
