Alberta Health Care will pay for an eye health exam once every year for people 65 years and older. It is highly recommended that seniors have a thorough vision and eye health exam yearly. Our doctors will particularly watch for age related issues such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
But general health concerns can impact the eyes as well such as diabetes and high blood pressure to name a few. As the body ages we are more susceptible to increasing eye health problems. Have your eyes examined regularly.
