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.

Preserve Your Eyesight With Harrison Eye Clinic

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

At Harrison Eye Clinic in Paris, 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 Harrison Eye Clinic today to schedule your eye exam!

Yesterday was my first visit as I have a business that I am at during the week that is a good distan... ce from my home area. I have to say this group was top notch. Dr. Anderson did a great job explaining everything with me and really took her time in making sure I had the perfect prescription for my eyes. The young lady who fitted me for my glasses was also extremely patient and friendly. I left feeling great knowing when my glasses arrive I will be able to find my golf balls again. 🙂

We made the switch from a local giant chain store vision center and the difference is phenomenal! I ... feel we get so much better personalized care at Harrison Eye Clinic. Not only that, but the store vision center told me my son’s insurance wouldn’t pay for his glasses and I would have to pay 100% out of pocket. I made him an appointment at Harrison’s and insurance paid 100%! I was not a penny out of pocket! Dr. Harrison as well as Dr. Anderson are both very sweet and kind. You can tell they truly love their job. They are both also wonderful with pediatric patients.

I like getting all the reminders they send. At my age, I NEED THAT! I can't remember a whole year ... in advance. I like the insurance verification they do ahead of time. It's a very well run place full of competent and friendly people.

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.
