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.

Excellent service and selection. Staff were so helpful and went beyond what I expected. Eyetique is ... fortunate to have the employees there especially in this era of diminished customer service and courtesy! My glasses are not easy to make and they are stylish and perfect. Well done Eyetique and staff!

Hands down, BEST experience I have had at an eye doctor in YEARS! My glasses/contact lens script is ... far from your "typical" one, so I was VEERRYY nervous and stressed out coming in because I did not know what to expect or what the doctor would say. Jamie at the front desk took the liberty to review my past eye history before the doctor even saw me, which helped a lot. I admit I did not know what to make of Dr Burke (at first), as he seemed to be a bit stand offish, but as the exam went on I began to feel more comfortable with him. He had absolutely zero judgement as to how my prescription was. Jamie was very efficient in explaining cost and shocked me by saying that I could order trial contact lenses but did not have to put anything down, money-wise. Was a big culture shock for me, being that past practices have wanted the money for contact lenses and glasses up front. My contacts and glasses have always been really expensive. All I had to pay was a copay. I could go on and on, but all in all, wonderful experience! So thank you Eyetique staff!

GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE AT EYETIQUE Many years ago I purchased a IC! Berlin frame for my ... glasses at the Murray Avenue Eyetique location. I loved this manufacturer’s ingenious frame design, and they soon became my favorite glasses to wear. I only seemed to wear the other glasses when I misplaced these – I had to use something to see so that I could find them. Recently, the time had come for new lenses. I returned to Eyetique and selected a different but similar IC! Berlin frame. This frame was similar but more streamlined and delicate. I thought they’d work fine. That proved not to be the case. Within less than three months after purchase the frames broke. The frame section called the “arm” or “temple” separated and fell to the ground while I was walking. There was no way of knowing where I lost it. I soon realized that this frame design could not be trusted. I returned to Eyetique to with my newly purchased glasses less one arm and explained what happened to Melissa Kelly, Eyetique’s Project Manager. She heard my concerns, quickly assured me that these glasses would be replaced no questions asked. I then selected another IC Berlin frame and picked them up today. I knew right away when I put them on that this frame design was far superior and that they would be trouble free. After leaving Eyetique with these new glasses I was completely satisfied with no lingering concerns. Through my personal experience, I would recommend a trip to Eyetique for your future eye exam and eyeglass purchases. Geoff

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.
