Caring for Your Vision Throughout Life

At Vivid Eye Care, we understand that vision is a precious gift, especially as we age. Senior eye exams are an essential part of maintaining healthy vision and overall well-being when you get older. 

Our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate care tailored to the unique needs of seniors. We can check for early signs of several eye conditions and diseases that affect seniors, including cataracts and age-related macular degeneration

At Vivid Eye Care, we recommend that all of our senior clients (age 65+) undergo annual eye exams to help our team detect and treat potential issues as early as possible. Contact us to schedule your appointment today.

Why Are Senior Eye Exams Important?

Vision loss is a major health concern for older adults. Age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy are just some of the conditions that can affect vision as we age. 

The good news is that many of these conditions can be detected and managed in their early stages through regular eye exams.

What to Expect During a Senior Eye Exam

As older adults have unique requirements for their vision care, we tailor our exams specifically to address these needs. Our eye exams are more than just a standard vision test. We take a comprehensive approach that includes going through your medical history.

We understand that every patient is unique. Following your senior eye exam, our doctors will discuss the results in detail and recommend a course of treatment based on your individual needs.

The eye exam begins with a thorough discussion of your medical history, as there are several medical and personal details that could factor into your exam.

Our team will perform any further necessary tests, such as eye muscle assessments, and then provide an overall assessment of the health of your eyes, with recommendations and next steps. This one-on-one time with your optometrist is also an ideal time to bring up any questions or concerns you may have related to your vision or health.

The next part of the exam uses noninvasive equipment and procedures to measure your eyes and assess your health. These procedures, performed by an optometric technician, may include:

  • Autorefraction: An autorefractor is one of the most commonly used devices in the eye care industry. It is used to examine how light is affected as it enters the eyes.
  • Digital Retinal Imaging: With this test, powerful cameras are used to produce highly detailed images of the eyes. An optomap image captures ultra-wide views of the back of the eye, providing information necessary to help diagnose conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and more.
  • Digital Retinal Imaging: With this test, powerful cameras are used to produce highly detailed images of the eyes. These images provide the information necessary to diagnose conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and more.
  • Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT): This is another noninvasive imaging test that uses light waves to create cross-sectional pictures of your retina—a key to detecting glaucoma and other retinal diseases.
  • Tonometry: For this procedure, we use an advanced, non-contact tonometer to measure eye pressure, which can be important for glaucoma detection.

If the results of your exam show a change in your prescription, the best time to update your eyewear or contact lenses is right after you step out of your eye exam. 

At Vivid Eye Care, we take pride in being a one-stop shop for all your eye health and eye care needs. Following your optometrist’s recommendations, our friendly and professional opticians and eyewear consultants can help you choose from the wide selection of eyewear and contact lens brands we offer.
