Senior Eye Care Mississauga
The Importance of Eye Care for Seniors
Aging brings about various changes in eye health, including increased risks for conditions like cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. Regular eye examinations are crucial for early detection and management of these conditions, helping seniors maintain their vision and quality of life.
Common Age-Related Eye Conditions
Cataracts: Clouding of the eye’s lens, leading to decreased vision.
Macular Degeneration: Affects the macula (part of the retina) and leads to vision loss.
Glaucoma: Increased eye pressure causing damage to the optic nerve.
Diabetic Retinopathy: Eye damage due to diabetes.
Vision Changes in Seniors
Seniors may also experience changes in their vision, such as presbyopia (difficulty focusing on close objects), decreased color perception, and the need for more light while reading. Our clinic is equipped to address these changes and provide appropriate solutions.

Our eye exams for seniors are thorough and include checking for common age-related eye conditions. We use advanced technology to ensure accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans.
