You may start to notice changes to your vision when you hit the age of 40 or 50. There are a number of age-related diseases you should be aware of. For this reason, as you become a senior citizen, your optometrist may want to talk to you about your higher risk for the following conditions and the needs that go along with that risk.
As you reach a certain age, new eye diseases may become a reality. This is because the overall health of your eyes may be deteriorating. It is common for seniors to struggle with the following:
- Low Vision: Even when using glasses, seniors may need to use a magnifying glass for everyday activities because of poor overall vision.
- Glaucoma: Usually associated with increased intraocular pressure, this disease can affect both center and peripheral vision.
- Cataracts: When the lenses of your eyes become cloudy, you may need to start thinking about the cataract treatments available to you.
- Dry Eyes: Sometimes the eyes become unable to produce or maintain proper surface moisture.
- Diabetic Eye Disease: This diabetes-related complication could cause damage to your retina and the blood vessels inside of it.
- Age-Related Macular Degeneration: This disease can affect your central, sharp vision, which can make it hard to drive and see things clearly.
As your body ages, your risk of developing diseases amplifies. Learning about the eye conditions you might develop could help you catch the problems early.
Attending yearly comprehensive eye exams may help you protect your vision as you age. A younger person may only have to see the eye care specialist once every two years, but with extra risks comes a need to see the doctor more frequently. These regular exams will make it easier for your doctor to promptly diagnose issues you have with your eyes. A timely diagnosis could be the difference between partial and total vision loss.

At Elite Vision Care, we offer a large selection of eyeglasses and contact lenses to improve both your vision and quality of life. In today’s post, we discuss the features and benefits of both options to help you decide which is best for you. [Read more…]
