YOUR GUIDE TO EYE CARE BY AGE

 

Eye problems are closely related to age and are often asymptomatic. See below on what to watch out for by age group to help detect these problems early on. 

8 DAYS TO 9 MONTHS

A visit to the pediatrician is mandatory and will notably detect a possible strabismus. At birth, strabismus is common. You can see an eye doctor to check that it is not permanent. After 2 months, strabismus becomes abnormal. An unsupported strabismus may prevent proper visual development of the child and cause amblyopia. Amblyopia detected too late can cause total loss of vision in the eye involved. The ASNAV, the National Association for Vision Improvement believes that diagnosing and correcting babies under 1 year could help prevent visual impairment in more than 40,000 children each year. 

9 MONTHS TO 6 YEARS

Plan a visit to the ophthalmologist to prevent strabismus, amblyopia and visual defects. The earlier the diagnosis, the better the odds of your child having good vision in the long term.

FROM 6 TO 18 YEARS

School myopia appears starting at 6 years. This is why it is important to do a check up every two years to screen for potential correction needs.

18 TO 35 YEARS

Visit the eye doctor every 5 years to detect potential correction needs.

35 YEARS

From this age, it is possible to detect eye diseases, sometimes asymptomatic for many years, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy (disease of the retina that affects nearly 50% of type 2 diabetic patients). Early detections helps limit the risk of irreversible damage.

45-60 YEARS

This is the time that presbyopia emerges and when we have trouble reading. This is normal and there are solutions to make your life easier! Visits to the ophthalmologist should be done every 2 or 3 years to prevent glaucoma, cataract, AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration) and diabetic retinopathy.

OVER 60

From this age, presbyopia stabilizes, but your eyes are more and more susceptible to eye diseases. A visit to the eye doctor at least every 2 years is required to monitor and detect any occurrence of glaucoma, cataract, AMD and diabetic retinopathy.
