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 El Paso EyeCare in Angel's Triangle, 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.

Danny (Mngr), and Diane (Eye care Spec), were very attentive to my needs, and concerns regarding my ... eye care. They were both very polite, patient, knowledgeable, and displayed great people skills. I would urge El Paso and surrounding area to visit El Paso Eye Care's North East location for their eye wear needs. Affordable prices, excellent service, quality frames, and lenses. You'll walk out seeing better, looking better, plus your wallet will thank you for choosing El Paso Eye Care! "Great Staff"

Staff is very professional and nice.

Most eye Docs have personalities as dry as the El Paso desert and don't seem too happy to explain th... e deep retinal and optic nerve scans. Not mine. Many eye places have cordial, yet indifferent, staff members. Not mine. Every person I interacted with at the reception desk, the technician running scans/tests, AND the eye doc, were professional, but they were also friendly, with a healthy abundance of humor. This place beat out previous eye practices I've patronized, all considered the best for that area (I've had very good health insurance since 2010) in Austin, Round Rock, Houston, and multiple practices in Michigan. Almost forgot to add: very affordable, and I rate my new glasses just above my last two, including my spare Oakley's .

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.
