Description of Progression of Eye Disorders in a Nursing Home



Abstract: This study of the progression of eye pathology in 100 nursing home residents found that the amount of eye pathology (cataracts, macular degeneration, and glaucoma) was high and increased from Time 1 to Time 2 (mean interval = 315 days) and that the increases in cataracts and macular degeneration were statistically significant. Also, the residents' best-corrected visual acuity dropped significantly from Time 1 to Time 2. These longitudinal data indicate the importance of routine assessments to detect changes in the vision of elderly residents.
