Senior Eye Care

Senior Eye Care Performed by our Texas Optometrist

As you age, your eyes become more susceptible to certain issues. Your vision will also worsen as you age, which could affect your quality of life tremendously. At Today’s Vision Rayford and Riley Fuzzel, our Texas optometrist offers our seniors specialized eye care services tailored to their specific needs.senior eye care from our texas optometrist

Thorough Eye Examination

After you reach the age of 65, you should see the eye doctor every one to two years, whether you're experiencing a problem or not. We'll conduct a thorough examination of your eyes to test your visual acuity. We evaluate how nearsighted and farsighted you are. We may prescribe a pair of standard glasses or bifocals, depending on your needs. 

After you reach the age of 40, you're at risk for a condition known as presbyopia. This particular condition is when you lose the ability to see up close, and it stems from the lens in the losing its elasticity. 

Screening for Cataracts

Sometimes, cataracts are age related. A cataract occurs when the lens of the eye becomes clouded. It causes your vision to appear hazy or blurry. Your vision will look like you're looking out a foggy window. It worsens with time and may potentially lead to blindness if not treated. When we first detect a cataract, we'll help you compensate for the problem by prescribing glasses to combat the issue. As the problem worsens, the cataract may need surgically removed. 

Screening for Glaucoma

As soon as your reach the age of 40, your risk of developing glaucoma increases. Glaucoma describes a condition that occurs when the optic nerve becomes damaged. The optic nerve is the connection between the brain and the eye, meaning it's how the eyes communicate with the brain. Your vision will worsen over time if you have glaucoma. The condition tends to arise as a result of an increase in pressure in the eye. It's possible you'll lose your sight completely if you have glaucoma. Generally, your peripheral vision will start to diminish before your central vision. We advise our senior patients to start or continue, getting regular screenings because any vision loss from glaucoma is permanent. 

Macular Degeneration 

We screen and treat patients for macular degeneration, a condition that usually occurs due to age. It causes blurred or reduced central vision. It's caused by damage to the macula, a small area of the retina. 

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy occurs when a person has diabetes, and it begins to affect the nerves. In this particular condition, the damage happens to the retina. Although you may not have symptoms at first, the condition can progress and cause total blindness. 

Treatments for Senior Patients

Our optometrist offers senior patients specialized treatments geared toward their condition. We utilize the latest technology to ensure you retain as much of your vision as possible for as long as possible. Additionally, we offer a wide variety of treatments ranging from eye drops to oral medications to customized glasses.
