Growing old is a privilege.

But when it comes to eye health, aging can bring on several ocular conditions and diseases like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.

Vision impairment decreases one's ability to perform activities of daily living and increases the risk for depression.

I’d like to thank Practice Manager Monica & Assistant Manager Mark. For helping me select the perf... ect set of Tom Ford sunglasses! As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by Mark. He was professional , friendly and was eager to answer any questions I had. Practice Manager Monica assisted me in selecting my frames. I must have tried on the entire stock! But she was patient, professional, and explained the lenses and coatings in detail. Thank you both for the five star experience!

Went in today for the first time, since my last eye doctor retired. Boy! What a great experience!!... ! The staff was courteous, knowledgeable, and extremely kind! I didn't even have to wait that long to be seen. I would say at best within 5 minutes of completing my new patient papers. The doctor was extremely sweet, knowledgeable, and kind as well!! Highly recommend this place! If I could give a higher rating than 5 stars, I would! Valerie Maros

I had my appointment late in the afternoon (4:20). I arrived early and since it was almost empty i ... went in almost right after i finished all my paperwork. The ladies that did the first part of the appointment were professional and courteous. And Dr. FAULKNER, was very nice, I've never had an eye exam where i felt the Dr. Was really paying attention and listening to my concerns. He was thorough and he explained everything. I had good experiences since i called to make the appointment.

I have recommended this place to many of my friends and family. Dr. Goff has been wonderful with my ... family. My mother was just seen and she explained everything to the fullest about what we needed to do. She was very detailed ! She had the office staff call the retina specialist and schedule for us and check to see if they accepted our insurance. Thank you for always making it a pleasant experience.

Everyone is so friendly! Dr. Faulkner is thorough and does an excellent job with examinations. The r... est of his staff is great too. They really treat you like a patient here, rather than just a number. Mariah is so patient and friendly. She enthusiastically helped us for over 45 minutes while we indecisively picked out our new glasses.

Senior Vision FAQs

Can presbyopia be corrected?

Presbyopia, age-related farsightedness, affects your eyes’ ability to focus on near objects. You may become aware of presbyopia once you begin holding books and newspapers at arm’s length to be able to read them. This condition is a natural part of the aging process and affects virtually all adults in their 40s. Our eye doctors will diagnose and help correct your presbyopia so you can see clearly again. They'll provide you with corrective glasses and/or contact lenses, such as monovision and multifcoals.

What are the most common vision problems in the elderly?

The most common causes of vision loss among the elderly are age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. 

  • Age-related macular degeneration is characterized by the loss of central vision. 
  • Glaucoma results in visual field loss.
  • Cataracts cause blurred vision and faded colors among the elderly.
  • Diabetic retinopathy is characterized by blurred vision and floaters, among other symptoms. 
  • Other conditions include dry or watery eyes and floaters. 

Because many of these conditions may initially be asymptomatic, it's critical that elderly patients undergo routine eye exams. The earlier these conditions are detected, the better the treatment outcome. 

Can macular degeneration be prevented?

Although there’s no sure-fire method for preventing eye disease, certain lifestyle habits can put the odds in your favor. To help ensure healthy vision for a lifetime, wear high-quality sunglasses whenever outdoors, quit smoking if you do, eat eye-healthy foods, and ask your optometrist about taking AREDS supplements. Most importantly, regular visits with your eye doctor are crucial to keeping your vision sharp throughout your golden years.
