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 Washington Square EyeCare in Canton, 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.

I haven’t been to the eye doctor in a long time. But I started having some pain in my one eye. So ... I just stopped there to ask if they could look in it. They took me in that same day! He fixed my eye. Then he squeezed me in the very next day for a follow up. I appreciated it so much. He and the staff were all awesome and so nice. I now have a new eye doctor.

Great eye doctor and staff here. We went here for exams and glasses when we lived in Canton, and hav... e started going back even after moving 45 minutes away. Worth the extra drive time to get the glasses and service that work best for us.

I stopped in to see if they could help after having something stuck in my eye. The receptionist was ... welcoming and was able to work me in. Dr. Raymondi was able to help me out quickly and I feel much better now! Thank-you, I would highly recommend!

I've been going to see Dr. Raymondi since I was young, and when he moved to a new office at Washingt... on Square Eye Care, I moved with him. Even though I now live in a different state, I still use his practice for my eye care. Dr. Raymondi is thorough and a great optometrist - both for regular eye exams and also emergency eye care (I've required both). His staff is kind, welcoming and accomodating. They ensure their patients receive the utmost service and care. They are willing to go the extra mile. I've been experiencing blurred vision recently, and Dr. Raymondi took the time to go through an exercise over the phone with me using a Google eye chart so he could better assess the urgency of my situation, and then ensured I am able to come get an appointment at a time convenient to my schedule. These days it can be hard to find doctors that you can trust to always provide excellent care. Dr. Raymondi is the optometrist who exemplifies what good eye care should look like and that is the reason I'm now willing to travel several hundred miles to continue to have my vision in his hands.

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.
