6 common eye problems as we age

There's no denying that optometry is your first step in solidifying quality vision. Our senior eye exams make certain we detect all obstacles and challenges that aging populations face. While we gather your health history and provide a standard vision test, we also understand the complications that specific eye problems can arise due to getting older. 

Following are 6 common eye problems for seniors we treat in our Chico & Paradise locations:

  • Macular Degeneration
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetic Eye Disorders
  • Glaucoma
  • Dry Eye Syndrome
  • Low Vision

The treatments for each common eye problem range from a variety of dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, in-office procedures, medications to reduce any inflammation, and sufficient eye drops that manage issues related to whichever condition is most prevalent. 

It's not always a simple solution when an aging patient has been suffering for years due to illness and pain as a result of eye problems. Our Reeve-Woods optometrist will be completely apprised of your situation and treat accordingly. Every situation is unique. We customize your senior plan based on eye exams and eye solutions. 

The eye doctor isn't the sole professional who offers compassion and care. We have a wealth of skilled team members who guide and recommend proper treatments and rehabilitative efforts in vision restoration. We can't dwell enough on how much we respect our senior patients and the willingness of their hearts and the steps we subsequently take to ensure optometry is working for them.
