Senior’s Eye Exam

The process of aging makes us all more susceptible to changes in vision. Seniors are at an increased risk for developing a number of age-related eye diseases and other conditions. Regular senior eye exams and a collaborative approach to health care and disease management by your optometrist and primary health care provider is the best strategy to protect vision and maintain good eye health as you age. With a clear and effective, proactive strategy to detect, monitor, and treat eye diseases, you can ensure that your lifestyle is preserved, your independence is supported, and that you maintain ideal levels of overall health and well-being for many years to come.

Maintain Healthy Vision And Optimal Eye Health

Common vision problems such as presbyopia (difficulty focusing on near objects) and night blindness (difficulty seeing at night or in low light conditions) may start as early as age 40, long before senior’s eye exams are recommended. But a number of age-related eye conditions and disease demonstrate increased risk for those over the age of 65. Some very common vision and eye health concerns for seniors include:

  • Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetic retinopathy

Comprehensive senior’s eye exams are also useful for detecting other conditions for which seniors are at an increased risk such as heart disease and cancer. Senior’s eye exams are a vital part of maintaining vision, eye health, and overall health and well-being.

Senior’s Eye Exams in Alberta

For those Albertans over the age of 65, annual comprehensive screenings by your optometrist are covered under the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP). Through the Optical Assistance for Seniors program, you may also qualify for coverage for prescription eyeglasses.

Early diagnosis and intervention can reduce your risk of permanent vision loss due to age-related eye disease. This vision loss will impact your independence and your quality of life. Do everything you can to protect and maintain your vision and eye health with good nutrition, a healthy lifestyle, and regular, annual comprehensive senior’s eye exams at Bower Eye Care.
