Your Vision in the Senior Years

Your Vision in Senior Years

Our eyes can deteriorate as we age, just like the rest of our bodies. Aging eyes can have a huge impact on the way that you live your day to day life. Caring for your eyes as you age with the help of a trusted ophthalmologist is a must. For those in the Tucson area, Fishkind, Bakewell, Maltzman & Hunter Eye Care and Surgery Center can meet all of your senior eye care needs. 

What Problems Do Senior Eyes Face?

As our eyes age, they become more susceptible to age-related illnesses and disorders like glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. These conditions can develop quickly in seniors, so one visit to the eye doctor per year will likely no longer be enough. Senior eye care requires more visits to the ophthalmologist and eye surgeon. 

During your first senior eye care appointment, our ophthalmologist will perform a comprehensive eye exam to establish a baseline for the health of your eyes. This makes it much easier to track changes in your vision over time and promptly correct any problems that arise. If the need for eye surgery arises, you can trust our ophthalmologists to handle it. We offer pre-surgical and post-surgical care, ensuring all of your senior eye care needs can be met in one location. Our offices also include a complete optical facility offering the latest in frame and lens technology with the services of our licensed opticians.
