Healthy Ageing: Keeping an Eye on Your Vision As You Age

We speak to Dr Tara George, consultant ophthalmologist and retinal specialist, to find out about how vision problems affect older adults, and how we can help them lead a good quality of life while retaining as much of their vision as possible.
