Senior Eye Exams at Sevigny & Associates Eye Care

Senior Eye Exam

Our professional, experienced team at Sevigny & Associates Eye Care offers comprehensive senior eye exams and senior eye care for age-related vision changes. Aging leads to changes in eye health. Obtaining regular senior eye exams helps provide quality eye care for your aging eyes. Learn about caring for your eyes as you age.

What Are Some Age-Related Eye And Vision Issues?

Do you take your glasses off to read, see the computer screen or a text message? Perhaps the headlights of oncoming cars seem to glare in your face. Maybe you increasingly experience dry or tired eyes. These are some eye changes that potentially affect aging eyes. It is important not to ignore early symptoms because of the possibility of experiencing more serious eye health issues. 

  • Presbyopia is typically one of the first changes. This is the experience of needing to hold things closer to read and finding it more difficult to focus your vision. 
  • Cataracts occur with more than 50 percent of the population by age 65. The degree that cataracts affect eye health varies, making it extremely important to see your optometrist at one of our convenient Sevigny Associates locations.
  • The National Eye Institute (NEI) indicates that diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of blindness. If you are a senior with diabetes, you need regular eye exams to determine if you have diabetic retinopathy.
  • Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the macula or central part of the retina, causing blurred, wavy vision or a blind spot. Prevent Blindness explains that individuals AMD potentially leads to issues with activities requiring sharp vision. Failing to have regular senior eye exams possibly leads to a delayed diagnosis.
  • The risk of glaucoma increases with age. Glaucoma often causes no initial symptoms, making it extremely important for seniors to receive annual eye exams.

Aging Affects Other Eye Structures

  • When you age, your pupils reduce in size because of loss of muscle strength.
  • Tear production decreases, leading to increased risk of dry eyes.
  • The conjunctiva thins as numbers of mucous cells decrease with age.
  • Other possible eye structure changes demonstrate the importance of receiving ongoing senior eye care.

Why You Should Have Annual Senior Eye Exams

You should have an annual eye exam because as you age, normal vision changes, diseases of the eyes and structural changes all have the potential to occur with few or no symptoms.
