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 Shawnee Optical - Lima in Lima, 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.

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.

I came here from another office because I was not happy at my old eye care center anymore. From the ... moment I walked in the door, I was met with a smile and friendly eager staff ready to help me. Dr. Wagner is knowledgeable, personable, and down to earth. The young man who helped my pick out my frames was very helpful and honest as well, which I appreciated too. I absolutely love my new glasses and for the 1st time in my life, I feel confident wearing glasses.

Excellent Service, all the staff was polite and pleasant. Dr. Wagnor is top notch and extremely prof... essional and caring. Her attention to detail and ensuring that I understood the results of my exam was both refreshing and enlighten. The young man that help me pick out my glasses (standard and safety) was well verse and able to answer all my questions and concerns. His professionalism was also top notch. Shawnee Optical was the only eye exam/care facility that had available appointments within a reasonable amount of time from when I placed it. The extensive eye wear show room is filled with different designs and styles, enough to find exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks to the staff and Doctor that helped me to see better again.
