Eyes Over 40

Senior Eye Care in Grandville

As you enter your forties and get older, you may be noticing changes in your vision. Most commonly, problems that occur have to do with close-up reading and vision. This is often with adults between the ages of 40 and 60. This is called presbyopia, which causes a lack of focusing ability, and it is a normal part of the aging process.

In addition to vision changes that are age-related, adults who are older than 40 can have an increased risk of developing eye health problems. This can include glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. It’s because of this that Grandville Optical recommends scheduling eye examinations every 2 years after turning 40.

Here are just a few of the warning signs of a serious eye problem:

  • Changing vision
  • Loss of peripheral vision
  • Floaters and spots
  • Blind spots
  • Torted or wavy images
