3 Ways Our Calgary Eye Doctors Protect Your Vision As You Age

Are you starting to notice some age-related changes to your vision? Visiting your Calgary eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam can help protect your vision and restore the health to your eyes.

Age brings about many changes in the body, and some of these changes may affect your eyesight. Certain changes are more serious than others, but for most conditions, there are many things you can do to protect your eyes as you get older and keep your vision clear.

One of the most important things you can do is schedule a yearly eye exam with your Calgary eye doctor so they can detect and treat any changes early on.

You should visit your nearest eye clinic immediately if you:

  • Have any redness or swelling of the eye
  • Are experiencing eye pain
  • See flashes of light
  • Experience sudden vision loss

3 Ways Your Calgary Eye Doctor Can Protect Your Vision As You Age

Many age-related eye conditions do not present with symptoms in the early stages so it’s very important that you visit your Calgary optometrist for an eye exam at least once a year, or when you notice any significant changes in your vision.

Here are 3 ways your Calgary eye doctor can help protect your vision as you get older:

1. Cataract Detection and Management

Cataracts are one of the most common causes of vision loss in people over the age of 40 and the principal cause of blindness in the world. The good news? This condition can be detected early on through an eye exam, following which cataract surgery is an effective way to restore vision.

Cataract Management Services in Calgary

At Blink Eyewear, we offer cataract assessment and management services to help keep your vision healthy and clear as you age.



2. Glaucoma Diagnosis and Management

Glaucoma occurs when your optic nerve is damaged and is one of the leading causes of vision loss across the globe. If it is not detected and treated early on, glaucoma can even lead to total blindness.

Why it’s so important to visit your optometrist

Glaucoma is typically asymptomatic in its early stages and only an optometrist can detect the presence of this condition through a dilated eye exam. At Blink Eyewear, we use state of the art equipment to provide glaucoma testing services to our patients to help preserve your vision.



3. Treatment of Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration develops when the macular (responsible for central vision) is unable to function as effectively as it used to, resulting in poor eyesight. During a dilated eye exam, your eye doctor will look for signs of AMD and can offer treatment options to slow its progression.

Early Detection is Key

The early diagnosis and treatment of AMD is critical for reducing the risk of severe vision loss. If you are experiencing any changes in your vision, such as blind spots or distorted images, visit your eye doctor straight away.
