Growing old is a privilege.

But when it comes to eye health, aging can bring on several ocular conditions and diseases like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.

Vision impairment decreases one's ability to perform activities of daily living and increases the risk for depression.

Whether you need reading glasses, bifocals, post-cataract surgery care, or eye disease co-management, we've got you covered! 

At Eyes Of The World - Washington Park in South Denver, we believe that prevention is the best medicine. That’s why annual eye exams are so important for seniors. Detecting eye conditions early on can help prevent or delay vision loss, keeping your vision clearer for longer. Some serious eye conditions don’t present noticeable symptoms until vision loss has occurred. Fortunately, these can be detected in their early stages by your eye care professional during your eye exam. 

If an eye disease is diagnosed, we’ll create a custom treatment plan and monitor your condition closely to ensure the best outcome. 

Contact Eyes Of The World - Washington Park today to schedule your eye exam!


Senior Vision FAQs

Can presbyopia be corrected?

Presbyopia, age-related farsightedness, affects your eyes’ ability to focus on near objects. You may become aware of presbyopia once you begin holding books and newspapers at arm’s length to be able to read them. This condition is a natural part of the aging process and affects virtually all adults in their 40s. Our eye doctors will diagnose and help correct your presbyopia so you can see clearly again. They'll provide you with corrective glasses and/or contact lenses, such as monovision and multifcoals.

What are the most common vision problems in the elderly?

The most common causes of vision loss among the elderly are age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. 

  • Age-related macular degeneration is characterized by the loss of central vision. 
  • Glaucoma results in visual field loss.
  • Cataracts cause blurred vision and faded colors among the elderly.
  • Diabetic retinopathy is characterized by blurred vision and floaters, among other symptoms. 
  • Other conditions include dry or watery eyes and floaters. 

Because many of these conditions may initially be asymptomatic, it's critical that elderly patients undergo routine eye exams. The earlier these conditions are detected, the better the treatment outcome. 

Can macular degeneration be prevented?

Although there’s no sure-fire method for preventing eye disease, certain lifestyle habits can put the odds in your favor. To help ensure healthy vision for a lifetime, wear high-quality sunglasses whenever outdoors, quit smoking if you do, eat eye-healthy foods, and ask your optometrist about taking AREDS supplements. Most importantly, regular visits with your eye doctor are crucial to keeping your vision sharp throughout your golden years.

Such a great experience today! Everyone was so nice to me (even though I was late for my appointment... ). Also, post-exam Bailey helped me maximize my insurance coverage so I could get new glasses and contacts at the best price. She also helped me pick out my new frames and I felt like I had a friend helping me get the frames that would look cute and match my price point! I wish all healthcare professionals were like Eyes of the World. I plan to be patient for a long time. Thanks so much for the great care and experience today!

I love Dr Baird. I had a really nasty virus in one of my eyes a few years back and she was so kind ... to me. It was scarey but she gave me peace of mind knowing she was watching out for me. I’m her patient for life!

I have been going here for many years, both the city park and wash park locations, and have always h... ad great service. I m have seen a few doctors over the years and liked them all. I saw Dr Kamibayashi last night and had an excellent experience. I learned a lot about how to keep my eyes healthy and reduce eye dryness. Paxton and Roman were also very friendly and helpful. You can find cheaper vision care, but they are truly worth every penny!
