  • The surgery was painless and quick... I walked out of my two month follow-up with 20/20 vision. It has been 30+ years since I could see anywhere near this well without some kind of lens.

Senior Eye Issues and Health

By age 65, one in three Americans have some kind of vision-impairing eye disease. Many people, however, don’t realize that their vision is deteriorating over time because it often comes hand in hand with other challenges of aging.

But poor eyesight is not something that seniors need to “suffer through.” In fact, maintaining good vision as you age is key to safely navigating your surroundings, communicating clearly and being a happy person! The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends a baseline eye disease screening exam at age 40. Even if you do not wear prescription lenses, it is important to have regular eye health exams, especially after age 60.

Seniors can preserve their sight with regular eye visits and updated prescriptions. Regular visits can also help in the early detection of serious conditions such as glaucoma, which can then be managed more effectively. Sometimes a surgical procedure, such as cataract surgery, can drastically improve your vision and therefore your quality of life.

Here at Sound Eye and Laser we diagnose and treat all of the most common diseases of the eye including cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. We’d be happy to have you as a patient. Please call 206-622-2020 to schedule your comprehensive eye exam today.
