Us Optometrists Always Say: Age Is Just A Number
As you may know, age-related vision changes happen to many people as they grow older. But eye problems aren’t something you should simply write off as normal. Some issues stem from new or worsening vision disorders. As you get older, these might happen gradually. Others happen suddenly, quickly causing blindness. That is why regular exams with our eye doctors are so important. You can take steps to lower your risk of age-related vision problems. A healthy diet and wise lifestyle choices, such as not smoking, are the most important natural defenses against vision loss as you age. Also, you need to have regular eye exams with a caring and knowledgeable optometrist, such as our premier staff at Eye Doc of Boca. Be sure to discuss with your eye doctor all concerns you have about your eyes and vision. Tell him or her about any history of eye problems in your family, as well as any other health problems you may have. When you visit our practice, we should know what medications you take (including non-prescription vitamins, herbs and supplements). This will help with appropriate recommendations to keep your eyes healthy and functioning at their optimum level throughout your lifetime as you age.
