Routine Eye Exams Can Protect Your Vision

We get a clear view of your eye health and vision by taking a number of different tests and examining various parts of your eye. However, preserving your vision means having regular eye exams throughout your adult life. We usually recommend having an eye exam:

  • Once every 2 years after you turn 18
  • Annually after you turn 65

Several different eye diseases and conditions can develop without noticeable symptoms, and your risk of experiencing these issues may increase if you have certain health conditions like diabetes.

To help manage these risks, we may recommend more frequent eye exams to monitor your eye health.

Common Age-Related Eye Problems

Your eye health can change as you age, possibly increasing the risk of several different eye diseases and conditions. Even though some of these conditions could permanently affect your vision, we may be able to prevent sight loss by detecting them as early as possible.

We personalize your eye exam experience to meet your unique needs. Using a variety of tools and technologies, we can observe various structures of your eyes, including your retina, macula, optic nerve, and so much more.

These tools can give us an insight into your eye health and help detect any possible issues you may be developing. You may encounter several different issues as you age, but some of the most common include the following. Click on each title to learn more.

Cataracts

Cataracts are an eye condition that slowly clouds your eye’s clear, crystalline lens. As you age, proteins in your crystalline lens can break down and clump together, making the lens more rigid and causing it to develop a milky, hazy appearance. Eventually, cataracts could affect your vision quality.

Early vision problems caused by cataracts may be corrected using glasses or contacts, but the only way to remove the cataract is through cataract surgery, which is safe and effective.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the most common eye diseases affecting adults over 55.

AMD affects a part of your retina known as the macula. The macula provides you with the sharp central vision you need to read, see fine details, drive, and recognize faces.

Please visit our Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management page for more information on this disease.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that affect your optic nerve, a part of your eye that takes information collected by your retina and delivers it to the brain, helping you see.

Most types of glaucoma occur when your eye’s intraocular pressure (IOP) rises over time. However, other forms of glaucoma can develop without affecting your IOP levels.

Learn more about glaucoma by visiting our Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management page.

Presbyopia is a common age-related refractive error. As you grow older, presbyopia occurs as your lens becomes more rigid, losing its ability to change its focus when you look at different objects.

If you have other refractive errors, like myopia or hyperopia, it may be difficult to see at various distances. We may recommend multifocal contact lenses or eyeglasses to help correct these errors and provide you with clear sight.
