Generation X at risk….

The risk of developing glaucoma increases with age, and people aged 40-plus have a higher chance of contracting the disease. Given the low number of Gen X’ers taking the time to have an eye examination, the generation is in danger of developing bad eye health habits that could put their eye sight at risk.

More than half (56%) of Australians are likely to put off having an eye examination, and one in two people with glaucoma in Australia are undiagnosed. The research however did reveal that ‘Baby Boomers’ are the most proactive generation when it comes to eye health, with 64% likely to prioritise having an eye examination.
