Your body never stops changing. As you age, your eyes can change in ways that influence your vision. Visit us once a year for an eye health exam. We will make sure your eyes have everything they need to stay as healthy as possible. After all, don’t you want to see your golden years?
Advanced age increases your chance of developing a number of eye conditions. We use our special diagnostic equipment to look for signs of these and other eye diseases.
Glaucoma is a disease typically associated with high intraocular pressure (IOP) causing damage to the optic nerve. Most cases of glaucoma develop slowly with no noticeable symptoms aside from a gradual loss of vision. By the time the patient realises their vision has changed, the disease has already caused significant permanent damage.
The best way to diagnose and treat glaucoma in the early stages is through regular eye health exams.
The macula is a small area of the retina responsible for seeing fine details in your central vision. As we age, deposits called drusen or scarring from damaged blood vessels can cause the macular tissue to start to decay. This is called age-related macular degeneration or AMD. As a result, patients begin to experience irreversible vision loss. Victims of AMD seldom notice any other symptoms.
The best way to diagnose and treat AMD in the early stages is through regular eye health exams.
Your eye’s natural lens is made of proteins and water. As we age, the proteins restructure, resulting in an increasingly cloudy and opaque lens. This is called a cataract, and it is one of the most common eye conditions. Cataracts can be reversed with a relatively simple surgery.
The best way to know when you can benefit from cataract surgery is through regular eye health exams.
