On-Site Care for Nursing Homes
Lifetime Vision Care has been proud to provide primary vision care to nursing home residents in Florida since 1995.
The Need is Great
Of all the senses, most people say they believe their eyesight is the most precious. Yet, functional blindness is a grim reality for 17% of all nursing home residents. Another 19% have lesser forms of visual impairment. Many of these cases could have been helped with regular professional eye care.
Most residents of long term care facilities are unable to walk or drive and cannot comfortably leave the facility for eye care. Many are physically unable to communicate that they are having eye problems. Unfortunately, few eye care physicians provide mobile services. Often, the eye care physician to whom the resident has been loyal for years is not able to provide care for the resident in a nursing facility setting.
The Right Choice
If you are a long-term care professional, a guardian, or a concerned relative of someone who will be requiring long-term care choosing to have professional eye care services is one of the best decisions you could make. You can protect your resident’s sight with scheduled eye exams by Lifetime Vision Care. No transportation needed … we bring our office to your facility.
You can trust the doctors at Lifetime Vision Care to put your patients’ eye needs first and to treat them with kindness and dignity. Because good vision is integral to the highest possible quality of life, it is our mission to provide primary eye care to those residents of nursing facilities for whom transportation needs and physical limitations make traditional doctors visits difficult or impossible.
