Solutions for Aging Eyes
There’s something to be said for aging gracefully, but there’s nothing graceful about not being able to see well – or not recognizing your own eyes when you look in the mirror. If you’re of a “distinguished” age, you’ve likely already begun to notice some of the less-than-optimal side effects that aging has on your eyes. Fortunately for you, you’re aging in a day when there are cutting-edge solutions to many of the issues you face. At Advanced Vision institute, we’re helping aging patients see, look and feel better than they have in years. Here are a few of the best treatments for age-related eye issues.
If you’re like many Americans, you might have already had your vision corrected through LASIK or a similar laser procedure. But up until recently, there was no permanent solution for presbyopia, otherwise known as age-related loss of up-close vision. At Advanced Vision Institute, we’ve been pioneers in the KAMRA Corneal Inlay. KAMRA is a light, microscopically thin device that your Las Vegas eye surgeon implants into you eye to correct your up-close vision. Not only does KAMRA cure your presbyopia now, but it has shown to be continually effective even as presbyopia strengthens with age. If you’re tired of holding a menu or your cell phone an arm’s distance away to read it, call us to see what KAMRA can do for you.
As we age, we’re much more likely to develop cataracts. Often, people don’t even realize they’re developing cataracts until their vision is seriously obscured. A cataract is a clouding of the lens, which is not only unsightly, but makes it difficult to see clearly as well. Having cataracts is like trying to look at the world through a foggy window. They can affect your ability to drive, work and your overall enjoyment of life. Fortunately, cataract surgery is a safe procedure that will help you see more clearly immediately. If you are or think you might be suffering from cataracts, give us a call and we’ll help you explore your options.
If you’re of a certain age, there’s no doubt you’ve noticed a change to the appearance of your eyes. That’s because, as we age, droopy, sagging and tired eyelids become a seemingly necessary evil of becoming older. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be a necessity any longer. Loose, unsightly eyelid drooping can be improved much more easily than you likely thought. Droopy eyelids occur as the natural collagen within the skin declines. Because collagen serves to keep skin smooth and elastic, the result is, well, probably not what you’d like. Our eyelid tightening treatments use laser technology to stimulate the natural collagen within the skin, helping your skin naturally regain elasticity and smoothness. Your tired, droopy eyes will be feeling – and looking – younger than ever.
Eyes are the windows to the soul, but if the areas around those windows are, well, wrinkled and lined, you’re likely not looking for anyone to do some soul-searching. Fine lines and wrinkles are part of aging, but fortunately, there are ways you can fight back – with little effort on your part. Our Botox treatments are minimally invasive, quick and painless. Botox can dramatically improve the look of tired, droopy eyes by helping to firm and smooth the skin surrounding them. Give us a call today to hear how Botox could work for you.
If you’re aging, you don’t have to suffer from vision problems or looking older than you feel. At Advanced Vision, we can get you seeing – and looking – younger than ever.
