Growing old is a privilege.

But when it comes to eye health, aging can bring on several ocular conditions and diseases like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.

Vision impairment decreases one's ability to perform activities of daily living and increases the risk for depression.

Dr. Wong was very professional and answered all my questions. She was very patient and let me try on... Show More many different brands of contacts until I found one I liked. Any issues I had were immediately fixed. When I told her one eye did not see as clearly as the other, she took me back to the room, ran some tests, and was quickly able to make the adjustment. The lady fitting glasses is very good too. I have a high prescription so the lenses are quite heavy. It took several visits to find a light enough frame and adjust it so that it wouldn't press down on my nose. The lady was very patient and made sure I was comfortable with my glasses. I know some other places the staff would be lazy to adjust the glasses and tell the customer to go somewhere else, but the people here are very responsible, patient, and skillful at adjusting glasses. I was getting both contacts and glasses, but I could only use my insurance for either frames or contacts but not both. Dr. Wong and other staff wrote down all the pricings for me, whether I get monthly or daily contacts, whether I get year supply, half year, 3 months, whether I use my insurance for frames or contacts, how much I pay after insurance and rebates, etc. It was hard to make a decision at first, but Dr. Wong and staff neatly wrote down all the pricings and helped me find the most cost-effective option. Anyways, the people here are very professional and I recommend this place to everyone.

Senior Vision FAQs

Can presbyopia be corrected?

Presbyopia, age-related farsightedness, affects your eyes’ ability to focus on near objects. You may become aware of presbyopia once you begin holding books and newspapers at arm’s length to be able to read them. This condition is a natural part of the aging process and affects virtually all adults in their 40s. Our eye doctors will diagnose and help correct your presbyopia so you can see clearly again. They'll provide you with corrective glasses and/or contact lenses, such as monovision and multifcoals.

What are the most common vision problems in the elderly?

The most common causes of vision loss among the elderly are age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. 

  • Age-related macular degeneration is characterized by the loss of central vision. 
  • Glaucoma results in visual field loss.
  • Cataracts cause blurred vision and faded colors among the elderly.
  • Diabetic retinopathy is characterized by blurred vision and floaters, among other symptoms. 
  • Other conditions include dry or watery eyes and floaters. 

Because many of these conditions may initially be asymptomatic, it's critical that elderly patients undergo routine eye exams. The earlier these conditions are detected, the better the treatment outcome. 

Can macular degeneration be prevented?

Although there’s no sure-fire method for preventing eye disease, certain lifestyle habits can put the odds in your favor. To help ensure healthy vision for a lifetime, wear high-quality sunglasses whenever outdoors, quit smoking if you do, eat eye-healthy foods, and ask your optometrist about taking AREDS supplements. Most importantly, regular visits with your eye doctor are crucial to keeping your vision sharp throughout your golden years.
