As we age, so do our eyes. The resulting changes can put older adults at risk for injury; limit participation in favorite activities; cause increased sensitivity to light and glare; and ultimately limit independence. However, in many older adults with “low vision” the problems are not so obvious to others—until we take a closer look and better understand the nature and extent of the problem.

However, there are many simple interventions and enhanced technologies available to maximize vision and function. This 30-minute program provides viewers with a broad range of tools and strategies to enhance safety and maximize independence, and describes services, tools, and options available for those with vision loss.

The Atlantic Philanthropies has awarded two grants to increase the knowledge and skills of those providing care to older adults. Information about the care of those over 65, derived from cutting-edge research and best practices, is now available to nurses and other providers in either print format or streaming video, at any time and at no cost, through this series called A New Look at the Old. The print series began in the August 2004 issue, and continued until December 2006.
