Importance of Routine Eye Care for Seniors

Eye care for all ages is important but especially for seniors. Our eyes change as we age, and as we get older our risk of developing eye problems and eye disease increases. For those in the Midland and Odessa, TX, area, Urias eyecare can help you with all of your eye doctor needs.

Why is Senior Eye Care Important?

Senior eye care is important for several reasons. For starters, senior eyes are often more delicate and do have more problems than a younger set of eyes. Many seniors also have compounding problems like diabetes, age-related illness, and more that can further complicate eye care. Senior eyes can also become damaged far easier than younger, healthier eyes.

What Type of Eye Care Do Senior Eyes Need?

When it comes to senior eye care, regular trips to the eye doctor are recommended. Changes occur more quickly in the eyes of seniors, so seniors might need to see the optometrist two or three times a year instead of just once. Vision problems can progress quickly, so it is important to catch them early and correct them immediately. Eye issues commonly experienced by seniors include:

  • Presbyopia
  • Cataracts
  • Floaters
  • Dry eyes
  • Pupil contraction
  • Eyelid inflammation

Our optometrist works with every patient to develop an optical care plan tailored to their individual needs. Aside from senior eye exams, our services include eyeglass exams, contact lens exams, sports vision exams, and eye surgery co-management.
