One of the great things of having a relationship with someone is that you tend to take care of each other whatever the outcome. You would like your partner to be always in the good part in all aspects of his or her life whether its about their career, hobby and especially health.
As couples and relationships grew over the years, they tend to be very keen on certain parts of their body especially if it tackles your physical health. When getting old, one of the primary parts that will always be looked into is the eyes. Having your partner go and consult a doctor is a duty a partner should do because anyone would be scared or ashamed to be checked even if he feels something is already different. Sometimes what the partner only want is a support to encourage them and to let them feel that you are there for them even if something is wrong with him or her. Pushing your partner to wearing an eye wear when the time that his or her eyes need it so that it could no further be damaged.
Be sure to take care of your partner even you get old because you if you let that be lost, your relationship will not last that long. That is the essence of having a partner in life - someone to talk to, someone to share things to and someone who will take care of you.
