Seniors Eye Exams

Book Appointment

Our Eyes Change Significantly As We Age. Seniors Over Age 65 Should Have Annual Eye Exams.

Our eyes are precious organs. Without them, the world becomes more difficult to navigate and understand. We believe that it is important to proactively care for our eyes, preserving their health and working to ensure a lifetime of great vision.

It’s no surprise that our health changes as we age, and of course our eyes are no exception. Cataracts begin to develop, and the effects of macular degeneration become more apparent the older we get.

Being proactive with eye care ensures that we detect and manage changes to your eye health before they cause vision loss.

Most eye exams are complete in under an hour. We utilize advanced technology that allows us to clearly examine your eye without having to use invasive tests or techniques.

We simplify the insurance component to keep things easy and convenient. We will work with your insurance provider directly. We also assist when using medical spending accounts and other payment options.

When Was Your Last Eye Exam?

The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends senior citizens have their eyes examined annually. If it has been more than a year since your last eye exam, please request an appointment to schedule one.

More Information About the Eye Exam

We are proud of providing eye exams that are comprehensive and detailed. We believe that our eyes are precious and must be preserved however possible. We know that a big chunk of that preservation comes from having accurate and up to date information.
Tests we perform during the eye exam include:

  • Digital Retinal Camera – A high-resolution photo of your retina allows us to assess its overall health and visualize developing eye diseases.
  • OCT Imaging – Technology that allows microscopic cross-sectional imagery of the retina and optic nerve. Valuable for diagnosing diseases like glaucoma or AMD.
  • Visual Field Analyzer – This test assesses your peripheral vision and is useful for diagnosing glaucoma or macular degeneration.
  • Auto-Refractor – Reads the curvature of the eye and helps approximate prescription readings.
  • Non-Contact Tonometer – A measuring device that monitors the pressure of the eye.
  • Visual Examination – An overview of health and vision concerns and conditions.
  • Peripheral Vision Screen – Determines the health of the connection between the optic nerve and brain.


Visual Clarity Tests – Determines precise prescription for optimal vision.

Senior citizens are far more likely to develop cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and glaucoma than younger people. Diabetic retinopathy is also a larger risk for senior citizens that live with diabetes.
