Are You Over 40?
Are you over 40? Have you noticed any changes in your vision? As we mature, there’s one thing that’s clear: our visual function changes. Our near-focussing becomes more difficult and we are more at risk of age-related eye disease.
If you are aged in your 40s, you’ve probably noticed that your vision has changed. Perhaps you need glasses to see up close? Or maybe you have experienced difficulties when aiming to adjust your eyes to varying levels of light?
Such changes are a normal part of the ageing process. But they should not prevent you from enjoying an active lifestyle.
Regular eye examinations play an important role in the detection of eye diseases in their early stages. If you are diabetic or have a family history of age-related macular degeneration (MD), glaucoma or cataracts you may be at a higher risk for developing these conditions.
Here, at The Eyesite Caringbah, we recommend comprehensive dilated eye examinations so we can detect eye diseases in the early stages before vision loss occurs.
