Senior Eye Health Exams
The premise is we all want health eyes to enjoy our senior years . Our eyes are what drives us though out the day and its important to take care of our aging eyes.
First Get A Comprehensive Eye Exam.
Everyone age 50 or older needs a comprehensive eye exam Many eye diseases have no early warning signs or symptoms, but a Spectrum comprehensive exam can detect eye diseases in their early stages before vision loss occurs. Early detection and treatment can help you save your sight. Even if you aren’t experiencing any vision problems, visit us for a comprehensive eye exam and we will tell you how often you need to have one depending on your specific risk factors.
At a time when you might not make appointments as frequently, seniors need regular eye exams more than anyone else. Yearly eye exams become much more important as we age. Eye problems can strike at any age as seniors are more likely to suffer from glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration than any other age group. Increased disease risk in addition to the constant problem of changing eyesight makes it crucial for seniors to schedule an eye examination yearly once they reach the age of 60.
Just as our physical strength decreases with age, our eyes also exhibit an age-related decline in performance particularly as we reach our 60s and beyond. That's why The Spectrum Eye Centre gives special attention to seniors. We provide a thorough eye exam tailored for your needs.
