Henderson Eye Center Offers Family Eye Care
Individuals often need different types of vision care throughout their lives. Your eye doctor can offer care for developing eyes during childhood and can help with specific vision problems during adulthood. Seniors need special vision care to protect against the changes caused by aging. At Henderson Eye Center in Henderson, TX, we provide vision care for individuals of all ages.
Pediatric Eye Care
Children often experience many vision changes as they develop. Poor vision can affect their ability to learn, to play with others and even their ability to socialize. With regular eye exams in the early years, vision problems can be detected and corrected, so that children can excel at academics, sports, and other pursuits. Problems such as weak eye muscles and increasing nearsightedness can be effectively treated to provide clearer vision for these tasks.
Vision Care During the Adult Years
Adults have many demands on their vision. Academics and work tasks may require working at computers for long hours, which can cause eyestrain, blurred vision, and headaches. Computer vision care can help to relieve these symptoms, allowing individuals to work more comfortably. Similarly, adults may develop dry eye problems that make them uncomfortable. Treatment for this condition can relieve eye discomfort. As the years pass, you may require prescription changes to help you see clearly. Regular visits to your optometrist can help to resolve eye and vision problems so you can work and play in greater comfort and with clearer vision.
Senior Eye Care
Individuals over age 60 need specialized eye care. Aging causes changes in the eyes, as it does in other parts of the body. You may have more difficulty seeing objects up close. You may need more frequent changes of prescription in your glasses. Certain eye disease may develop at this time of life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or macular degeneration. If you have diabetes, you may be at risk for diabetic retinopathy, which requires careful monitoring and treatment to preserve vision. Optometrists are trained in managing eye diseases and providing careful attention to aging eyes.
