Did you know that individuals over the age of 60 are more likely to develop health and vision conditions that may be detected along with other medical diseases during an eye examination?
People over 60 are more likely to experience faster than normal decline in vision quality which may lead to a safety concern.
Conditions such as Glaucoma and Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) are eye conditions that are significantly more common as we age. Risk factors may include family history, smoking, and accumulated UV exposure.
Another concern for a senior’s vision is the development of cataracts, a medical condition in which the lens of the eye becomes progressively more opaque, resulting in blurred vision.
