The Canadian Association of Optometrists suggests that adults age 65 and older, visit their optometrist annually. However, your optometrist may suggest you have your eyes examined more frequently if you have or are at risk for vision problems and eye diseases.
The Importance of Regular Eye Exams
It is normal for our eyes to change as we get older, but age-related conditions such as presbyopia or cataracts will impact your vision as they progress. Eye exams allow your optometrist to detect and track changes in your vision and ocular health, ensure your prescription is up to date, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
A sudden or unexpected change in your vision may indicate that you are developing an eye disease or other serious condition that could, if left untreated, rob you of your sight. At Central Optometry, we use cutting edge technology and advanced testing and monitoring techniques to evaluate your vision and eye health and detect and track small changes. Early detection is vital to slowing or even preventing eye disease-related vision loss.
During Your Exam
During your exam, we will review your medical history and address any questions or concerns you may have. Next, we will examine your eyes and ensure that your prescription is up to date and conduct a series of tests to determine if your eyes are healthy.
If we detect any signs of eye disease or other eye or vision-related conditions, we will work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan to safeguard your vision.
