EYE-EXAMS FOR SENIORS
Early detection and expert treatment are key. When vision problems are caught early, they often can be fixed or prevented.
What to Expect at an Eye Exam
Doctor will review your personal and family health history for hereditary problems of eye disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or poor vision. Then your doctor will conduct tests to check for:
Side (peripheral) vision - The doctor will move an object at the edge of your field of vision to make sure you can see it.
Pupil response to light - The doctor will shine a light in your eye and watch the pupil's reaction.
Color testing - The doctor will ask you to describe figures in a series of illustrations made up of numerous colored dots or circles. This tests your ability to differentiate colors.
Vision - While you look at an eye chart, the doctor will measure your vision precise.
Coordination of eye muscles - The doctor will move a light in a set pattern to test your ability to use both eyes together.
Eyelid health and function - The doctor will examine your eyelid, inside and out.
The interior and back of the eye - After dilating your eyes (by both using a few eye drops and dimming the lights so the pupils will widen), the doctor will use a special instrument called an ophthalmoscope to see through to the retina and optic nerve at the back of the eye. This is where clues to many eye diseases first show up.
Measurement of fluid pressure - The doctor will release a puff of air onto your eye using an instrument called a tonometer. This tests the pressure inside the eye, an early indicator of glaucoma and other diseases.
Common Changes with your vision as you get older
Need for More Light Brighter lighting will help make reading and other tasks easier.
Noticeable Glare Changes within your eye’s lens causes light to be more scattered, which creates more glare.
Color Shifts Lenses can become discolored, making it harder to distinguish between certain shades of colors.
Reduced Tear Production With age, the tear glands in your eyes will produce fewer tears. Keep artificial tears on hand.
Common vision problems to look out for as you age
Cataracts Clouding leads to blurred vision. More than half of all Americans older than 65 have cataracts, but the surgery is one of the most common and successful medical procedures in the world.
Glaucoma As fluid pressure builds up inside the eye, glaucoma can cause permanent blindness if left untreated.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration Affects your central vision, including color and fine detail. Symptoms include perceived distortion of straight lines.
