Middle age is often the time you begin to notice changes to your vision, particularly if you haven’t needed to wear glasses or contact lenses before.
Middle-age is also when the risk of certain eye diseases increases substantially and often there are no symptoms in the early stages e.g. glaucoma. Regular Eye Exams can detect eye disease before significant damage to vision occurs.
Regular eye examinations for adults are highly recommended at least every two years and annually after age 60.
Not only can we detect potentially blinding but treatable eye diseases, we may also uncover warnings or the presence of disease elsewhere in the body, for example diabetes, high blood pressure and rarely, tumours or other brain abnormalities.
Because our focus is on the life-long eye care of the whole family, we encourage you to routinely have eye examinations.
They are one of the best investments you can make in your future health and well-being.
Your eyes depend on a flow of moisture to maintain their mobility and comfort.
Dry eyes can develop for a variety of reasons, some of which are connected with normal aging. Some medications can also contribute.
If dry eyes are causing you discomfort, we can help. There are a number of options we can discuss, depending on the severity of your symptoms.
