Senior Eye Exams (65+)

Effects of Aging

We all are aware of the tolls aging takes on our human bodies. Backaches, hip dislocations, arthritis, wrinkles, and graying hairs are only a few of the noticeable signs of aging. In the realm of the visual world, aging also places many hurdles on our path to clear vision.

Are you requiring more lighting to read?

Are you experiencing glare around lights, especially at night?

Is your vision not as sharp and crisp as it used to be?

These are all likely visual signs of aging. Age can cause prescription changes, cataracts, blurry vision for near and far, and many different visual disturbances.

Eye Disease

The elderly are at a much higher risk for eye health diseases and disorders. Some major conditions that affect the elderly frequently are:

Macular Degeneration
Cataracts
Glaucoma
Dry eyes
Diabetic Retinopathy

Early signs of disease and changes in vision may start to occur by the time you are 40 years of age. Annual examinations are HIGHLY recommended from age 40 onward.

"Senior citizens" are adults aged 65 years and older. They are partially covered through their BC Medical Care Card in British Columbia for ONE eye examination EVERY YEAR.
