Senior's Vision

As we grow older the importance of regular eye care becomes more critical.  Preventative care is the key to a lifetime of clear vision.  People over 65 years of age should seek an eye exam yearly… even if their vision seems good with their current glasses!  The increased importance of yearly comprehensive eye exams as we age is due to the increased incidence of ocular disease like those listed below.  Please click on one of the following video presentations for more information regarding these conditions.
