The reason we go for annual eye exams is that our eyes never stop changing. While eye exams are important no matter how old you are, age increases your risk for certain diseases and conditions.
To help keep your eyes happy and healthy individuals over the age of 65 should undergo eye exams a minimum of once per year.
Warman Eye Care is also proud to offer direct billing, making it easy for you to get reimbursed for your eye exam. Don’t delay, request a comprehensive eye exam today!
Your risk of developing serious eye diseases increases as you age. Early detection of disease is key to limiting damage and slowing disease progression. The most common aging changes are:
Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process, and affects your eye’s ability to focus on small text at near. Most individuals over forty will begin to experience presbyopia, even if they have never had previous vision problems. Presbyopia is easily treated using reading glasses, progressive or bifocal lenses.
Just like glass gets cloudy over time so do the lenses in our eyes. Age and sun exposure cause our lenses to get cloudy over time, causing blurry, dim vision, and dulling even the brightest of colours. This condition is called cataracts, and it occurs when the protein in our lenses begins to changes with age.
Glaucoma occurs when fluid builds up in the front portion of your eye. This extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye and can ultimately damage your optic nerve and cause tunnel vision. If left untreated it will continue to reduce your field of vision until you experience total, and irreversible, vision loss.
The macula is the part of your retina responsible for your central vision. Age related macular degeneration (AMD) occurs when small deposits called drusen form in the macula or the blood vessels in your macula start to deteriorate due to age. Age related macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in Canada.
During your Comprehensive Eye Exam we will check your prescription as well as test your vision, eye coordination and eye health using cutting edge technology. To help keep you informed and at ease this will be done in a friendly, comfortable and informative manner. We will also answer any questions you have and help you address any concerns you may have about your vision or eye health.
