Your eye health is very important! That's why we take time to educate our patients about certain conditions that may be going on in their eyes. Our doctors are happy to go into more detail at the time of your exam, as well as personalize the discussion and treatment available for you.
Many eye diseases have no early symptoms, so it’s important to have regular eye examinations whether or not you wear eyeglasses, and even if your vision is clear.

If you are among the 85 million Baby Boomers in the United States and Canada (born between 1946 and 1964), you've probably noticed your eyes have changed. Most notably, presbyopia - the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability - usually becomes a problem in our 40's, requiring new vision correction solutions. Learn about measures you can take to keep seeing clearly for years to come.
Just as our physical strength decreases with age, our eyes also exhibit an age-related decline in performance - particularly as we reach our 60's and beyond. Some age-related eye changes are perfectly normal, but others may signal a disease process. It's important to recognize signs and symptoms, and perhaps even more important to mitigate the effects of aging with some simple and common-sense strategies.
