This study shows quite a high number of older persons living in old age homes have eye problems but there seems that they are not aware of the problem. Similarly, many elderly are also not aware of dental problems and still, nearly 24% of the elderly use their finger to brush teeth. So Nepal needs more public health related dental and eye problem awareness programs to the elderly so that we can make our policy and it will imply for the healthy and happy longevity. Future, research needs to do more in-depth research focusing on the eye and oral health problem as well.
