Know What to Expect as You Age – Come Learn About “The Aging Eye” On February 12th

Vision Changes with Aging

Your eyes change throughout your life. This won’t come as surprise to anyone who has watched their vision prescription change from one eye exam to another. But, as you age, some changes tend to occur more quickly and can have a larger impact on your eye health.

For instance, did you know that presbyopia (the vision condition that puts most people in reading glasses as they age) is normal past the age of 40? Or that floaters in your vision are perfectly natural, but if they’re accompanied by flashing lights, you should see your eye doctor right away?

We don’t want you to have to watch your vision fade as you get older. That’s why we’re hosting “The Aging Eye” — a free seminar aimed at giving you the tools you need to take care of your changing eyes.

Learn What Comes Next for Your Eyes — Before It Happens

Some things that happen to your sight are completely normal: loss of near vision, color perception, or tear production all come with age. Floaters in your sight and light sensitivity are to be expected, too.

But sometimes, these are indicators of larger problems. For example: floaters accompanied by flashing lights may indicate a retinal condition. Cloudy vision may be the result of a developing cataract. Knowing the signs and preventative measures for glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, and more could make all the difference when it comes to detecting eye health issues as early as possible.
