Senior Eye Care at EyeCare Plus in Amarillo
EyeCare Plus is your eye care headquarters in the greater Amarillo area, no matter your age. We work with patients of all ages and believe that regular eye care throughout all life stages can help to postpone or prevent many of the serious eye conditions that can develop with age. Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, cataracts, and dry eyes can be detected and treated in their early stages.
Eye Health as We Age
The first sign of declining eye health is often the development of presbyopia, which occurs when the lens stiffens and makes it more difficult for the eyes to focus properly. This typically begins in middle age with more serious conditions becoming possible as we grow older. Eye problems such as cataracts, glaucoma, and AMD can lead to decreased vision and even blindness when left untreated. Dry eyes are another symptom that can develop in old age and it can sometimes be a sign of a more serious condition.
At EyeCare Plus we are dedicated to providing the eye care and vision needs to maintain a level of overall wellness for our patients.
