As you age, it is important that you visit Dr. Fydell for regular annual eye exams to recognize any potentially serious vision problems and to preserve good eye health.
As you enter your 60s, you will find that some age related changes to your vision are normal. Changes in structure include: reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision and decreased color vision. Cataracts are normally associated with aging but medications and other factors may also contribute. Cataracts are easily corrected with surgery. Some changes are serious and can result in the deterioration of vision quality. Included among these serious changes are glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration, retinal hemorrhages and detachments, etc. Do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any sudden vision loss.
During your eye exam, make sure to discuss any concerns you may have with Dr. Fydell. He will gladly answer any of your questions and provide you with the best treatment options available to you.
