Contact lenses are used to correct the same conditions that glasses correct: Nearsightedness, Farsightedness, Astigmatism, and Presbyopia. Certain individuals may require contact lenses for medical reasons, but they can also be fit for cosmetic reasons, such as changing eye color. There is no age limit for wearing contacts.

As we age, eyelid skin stretches and muscle tone weakens often creating the appearance of being tired and/or aging prematurely. The excess skin creates a decrease in peripheral vision often causing the patient to raise their eye brows to improve their vision. As a result of raising the eye brows, deep lines in the forehead develop and fatigue ensues.

Glaucoma is a potentially sight threatening disease that does not have symptoms in the early stages. Annual eye examinations that include screeing for glaucoma are important and part of the services Eye Surgical & Medical Associates offers to their patients. If glaucoma is detected the doctors can prescribe different treatment options.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) consists of deterioration of the central vision portion of the retina in an older patient. In early stages, the patient may notice difficulty reading smaller print, especially when the lighting is poor or the contrast is not sharp. With time, this "wearing out" effect in the central vision may lead to larger areas of blurry or blocked central vision.
The retina is a light-sensitive layer that covers the interior surface of the back of the eye. Photosensitive cells, called rods and cones, convert light energy into signals that are carried to the brain by the optic nerve. In the middle of the retina is a small dimple called the fovea centralis, the center of the eyes' sharpest vision and the location of most color perception.
