Senior Eye Health Care Services at Market Mall Optometry

Regular eye exams for seniors are very important. Not only are older patients more prone to developing chronic eye disorders such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, but eye exams can also uncover symptoms of significant health problems including:

  • Carotid artery blockages
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes

Our Calgary eye doctors provide a range of comprehensive senior eye healthcare services including:

  • Cataract Management

Cataracts are a nearly unavoidable part of aging. Our eye doctors are able to diagnose cataracts during a comprehensive eye examination and can help determine whether you are a suitable candidate for cataract removal surgery.

  • Glaucoma Testing

Early detection of glaucoma is crucial to prevent vision loss. Only a comprehensive eye exam can reveal whether or not you have this eye disease and usually involves checking your eye pressure, the health of your optical nerve and your peripheral vision.
