New Glasses? Here’s How to Prevent a Fall
Getting used to your new eyeglass prescription can take time. To help you avoid the risk of falling while you adjust, especially to progressive lenses, follow these tips:
• Always wear your glasses as your doctor recommends. You’ll get used to a prescription faster if you wear your glasses regularly.
• Get comfortable walking on flat surfaces before attempting stairs.
• When walking up or down stairs, hold on to handrails. Try to look straight ahead instead of down when descending, especially when you first start wearing your glasses.
