wow, 88 years old is pretty amazing.

are you male or female?

that is good you are able to exercise as much as possible everyday.

have you seen an eye doctor for eye testing.

you should ask your GP doctor to refer you to see a neurologist or nerve doctor for nerve testing to see what is causing your balance issues

most likely your poor balance and poor vision and eyes are due to your advanced age. when we all get older, our nerves don't work as well as they once did.

let me know if you have questions.
