Your medical needs change as we get older, and this also applies to your vision care; it’s critical to monitor and adjust eye care needs with advancing years.
Our team pays special attention to specific eye problems that are highly correlated with age. We’re alert to signs of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Age-related macular degeneration can be slowed or stopped with medication or surgery, depending on the type, but it must be spotted early to prevent serious vision loss. You should be sure to be examined frequently.
Our doctors will also check for several other problems. Expect to be tested for glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and common refractive errors (difficulty focusing) as well as for issues that are more directly related to age.
