Seniors Eye Exams: Extra Care For Ageing Eyes

As you age, your body becomes more vulnerable to certain conditions and diseases. This is particularly true with your eyes. Regular eye exams allow us to ensure your eyes are working properly, and screen for any potential issues or diseases.

We recommend all patients over 60 have their eyes examined at least once a year.

Why You Need an Eye Exam

Many eye diseases develop slowly without giving any indication of their presence. These diseases can gradually cause permanent damage to your eyes. By the time you have noticed any vision loss, your eyes have already undergone significant damage.

The testing procedures at Toronto Centre Optometry allow us to thoroughly inspect the function and inner structure of your eye; alerting us to any potential problems. By diagnosing and treating potential problems early, we can proactively preserve your vision, possibly for years to come.

Glaucoma is an eye disease that usually causes slow, gradual loss of peripheral vision. This disease causes damage to the optic nerve, usually through high intraocular pressure or IOP levels. Vision loss due to glaucoma is permanent. Glaucoma does not often create any symptoms aside from vision loss, making regular eye exams crucial to its detection. Once glaucoma is diagnosed, it cannot be cured, but it can be treated to prevent or delay any further vision loss.

The macula is a small portion of the retina that allows us to see detail. Sometimes, the macula can become damaged due to fatty deposits or scarring caused by irregular blood vessels. This damage is called age-related macular degeneration or AMD, and it is the single greatest cause of vision loss among Canadians.

AMD does not typically cause any symptoms, aside from permanent cumulative vision loss. This vision loss can be prevented or delayed if AMD is detected early through an eye exam.

The eye’s crystalline lens tends to restructure with age, often creating a cloudy film which grows more opaque with time. This film is called a cataract, and it occurs in almost everyone at some point. Cataracts are not painful, but they can cause images to appear blurry, colours to appear dull, and light to cause glare or halos.

The vision loss associated with cataracts can be mitigated through strong prescriptions, and eventually reversed through surgery.
