Getting out to eyesight and hearing tests can be hard so it’s great to know there are options for having these done in the comfort of your own home. It’s so important to keep our eyes and ears in check, and we should be doing so once a year over the age of 60. Both vision and hearing loss can increase our risk of falling. The health of our eyes can be an important indicator for other conditions too, for example it might show early signs of diabetes or heart disease. If glaucoma runs in the family it’s particularly important to be seen regularly. Hearing loss can affect the balance centre in the inner ear, making falls more likely. And of course hearing loss can lead to social withdrawal and feeling less confident.
