Seniors Eye Exam

You Only Get One Pair of Eyes. Seniors Benefit the Most From Annual Eye Exams.

You’ve Had Sixty Years of Eye Care – Here’s to the Next Forty!

If you have gotten this far without any serious eye problems, that’s fantastic news! It is not, however, a good time to take your foot off the gas. Age-related vision problems like macular degeneration or cataracts become much more common once you pass 60 years of age, so eye care should become one of your top health priorities.

Our exams are quick, effortless and carried out by absolute experts. Reach us by phone or online and book your annual appointment today.

Our Eye Exams Don’t Stop at Your Vision

There are plenty of illnesses which can be detected by our optometrists even earlier than by your GP, including cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. The eye is a telling organ, and the delicate structures and blood vessels inside of it can paint a clear picture with respect to your overall health. As we age, our bodies are less able to fight off invasive health conditions, so an eye exam could catch diseases before they progress into anything serious.

Early Recognition Is Key

At Westmount Optometrists & Glencoe Optometrists every exam is different and if we need more time for yours, then that’s what we’ll do.

The complete assessment is straightforward and involves:

  • A short discussion about your personal health history, your current eye health, as well as that of your family and any eye or vision problems you may be having.
  • Analysis of ‘how well’ you are seeing.
  • Measurement of the refractive error of your eyes to determine whether or not you require corrective lenses or other treatment.
  • Analysis of how well your eyes and eye muscles work together (known as binocular function).
  • Finally we’ll do a comprehensive exam of your eye structure, searching for any signs of eye disease or other underlying health issues.

On the one hand, we want to quantify how well you can see. Ageing eyes can trick us into thinking we’re just fine when often we are straining our eyes quite heavily; it’s our job to spot any loss of detail early as possible.

On the other hand, we look for signs of any eye disease which could be affecting your vision, or which isn’t yet showing symptoms. Whether you are are experiencing symptoms or not, our state-of-the-art equipment will help us determine what condition is causing them.

Early detection is key in limiting the effects of eye disease, so it’s never too early for an exam!

If it’s a simple refractive error, we will assess the strength of corrective lenses required to provide the best possible vision. This is the most common reason for wearing glasses, and isn’t anything to worry about once spotted.
Using our advanced examination equipment, we are able to detect a variety of eye diseases in their infancy before any symptoms present. If there are any signs to notice, our doctors will be there to find and treat them early.

Why It’s Important to Come Back Every Year

Your eye health is changing all the time – this is why we are quick to remind our patients that an annual eye exam is an important part of their preventative health routine. Remember, most illnesses develop asymptomatically; the warning signs don’t usually present until vision loss has occurred.

Besides, our friendly optometrists love catching up with returning patients. Don’t be a stranger – come by and pay us a visit!
