Senior Eye Care

The health of your eyes and quality of vision are always changing but it becomes most apparent as you age. Seniors can require additional treatments and care so it’s important to ensure seniors continue their yearly exams but also may need to be examined more frequently.

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration: This affects your central vision, including color and fine details. Symptoms include perceived distortion of straight lines.
  • Glaucoma: Has potential to cause blindness if untreated. Caused by fluid pressure build-up in the eyes.
  • Ocular Hypertension: Refers to higher-than-normal pressure in the eye, and can be a precursor to glaucoma. This is very common but also very treatable if caught early.
