One in six Americans age 65 and older have a vision impairment that cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses. To bring attention to the importance of taking care of our eyes as we age, the American Academy of Ophthalmology celebrates Healthy Aging Month every September. The risk of eye disease increases with age, yet many older adults neglect to see an ophthalmologist for care. Many eye diseases have no early warning signs or symptoms, but they can be detected early with regular comprehensive dilated eye exams.
Don't wait until you notice problems with your vision. Call us today to make an appointment for a comprehensive dilated eye exam. Early diagnosis and treatment are the best ways to prevent vision loss.
