Eye Care for Life Intensive

If you have a strong family history of eye problems or have been diagnosed with a particular condition, it is important that you are examined frequently to ensure the condition is stable and that any treatment plan is working.

As you reach 60 and beyond you need to be aware of the warning signs of age-related eye problems that could cause visual loss. Many eye diseases have no early symptoms, they may develop painlessly, and you may not be aware of changes to your vision until the condition is quite advanced. Wise lifestyle choices and regular eye examinations can significantly improve your chances of maintaining good eye health even as you age. Eye diseases common to this age group are macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, cataracts, glaucoma and dry eye. The earlier any of these problems are detected and treated the more likely you are to retain good vision. You may also find that driving becomes increasingly difficult. Age related disease can compromise your ability to drive, particularly at night, even before you are aware of any symptoms

    • Corneal scan
  • Fundus autofluorescence
  • Macular Pigment density testing
  • Macular disease predicative testing
  • Glaucoma predicative risk assessment
  • Corneal topography
  • Automated corneal shape measurement
