Healthy Aging and Your Eyes

Protecting Your Vision as You Age

The aging process affects your vision the same way it does the rest of your body. Growing older is why it is essential to have regular vision examinations. Such services are available from Eye See optometry services, located in Lincolnshire and Des Plaines, IL.

Eye Health and the Aging Process

Some men and women continue to have good eyesight into their later years, but many will experience vision problems. One of the more common eye disorders associated with aging is presbyopia, a reduction in near vision. Another problem is the development of cataracts, marked by a clouding of the lens that reduces the ability to see clearly. Age-related macular degeneration affects one portion of the eye and also reduces vision.

Dry eye syndrome may develop through insufficient production of tears. Glaucoma is a disorder caused by excessive pressure within the eye, which results in total vision loss. Anyone experiencing vision problems should seek the services of an eye doctor. Seniors should also seek a regular visual examination.

What to Expect from an Eye Doctor

Our optometrist practices a detailed examination that only lasts a short period. It will include a test of visual acuity and general eye movement. Another vital procedure is a test to detect pressure within the eye and the development of glaucoma. Our optometrist may correct these problems with eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Other issues may require different remedies. However, those at least 65 should have annual eye exams, regardless of their vision, to prevent future problems.
