Age-Related Macular Screening
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the western world, which, because its symptoms are largely painless, can be left undiagnosed without a regular eye examination until the sufferer loses their central vision.
We provide regular and comprehensive screenings for this condition.
When the lens within your eye grows larger and becomes cloudy, there’s a high chance you might have cataracts.
Although this impairment comes in many forms, the most common are age-related cataracts, which can be found to some extent in most people over the age of 65.
Cataracts can lead you to suffer cloudy and hazy vision. We can check for all the signs and symptoms of cataract during your check-up.
Ageing eyes and falls
A large number of diseases of the eyes are related to the ageing process and all these eye problems can increase your risk of potentially debilitating falls.
You’re most likely to fall if you:
Are aged over 75
Have fallen before
Have Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, diabetes, Meniere’s disease or dementia
Are taking sedatives, antidepressants or more than four medications a day
