Vision over 40: Advanced Eye Care Begins with Advanced Tech

Our August Wallace Eyecare Associates staff utilizes the latest techniques and equipment for vision testing your 'over 40' vision issues, including Digital Retinal Imaging (evaluates the health of your retina and detects diseases such as diabetes and macular degeneration) and Refractive Surgery C-Management (tests for LASIK, PRK or Cataract Surgery) Learn about the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to August Wallace Eyecare Associates.

Along with age's greater level of awareness & wisdom comes greater personal care. However, for many of those who plan ahead and schedule annual eye exams with their local optometrist, eye health can be managed and prevent the development of eye and vision problems. For vision over 40, multifocal eyeglasses may be a good fit for you, so talk to your eye doctor today.

For those who have a family history of glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, or high blood pressure, prevention is key to maintaining long lasting vision.
