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.

I went to the Campbell location for a prescription checkup and am very happy with my experience. Aft... er my appointment with Dr. Tetrault, who was very kind, I was shown some frame options while my current pair were adjusted and cleaned. The options were reasonably priced but I was not pressured to buy anything like I have been at other optical offices. I was able to get a copy of my updated prescription and paid about $70 for an out-of-pocket/uninsured standard eye appointment (no contacts). If you need an easy eye appointment, especially a standard yearly update, I recommend Alvernon Optical!

Dr Tetrault provides excellent care and has a very comforting and warm disposition too. I’ve tried... other Ophthalmologists over the years but came back to his office because he provides the best service.
- Sep. 10, 2023
I recently had 2 very disappointing experiences with the place I've been going to since 2016. I wan... ted a second opinion & found that Dr. Tetrault was still practicing! (I used to go to Dr. Tetrault over 15 years ago.) He's just how I remebered; very patient, calm, & took the time to help me understand my eye issues. He's a doctor who actually listens! The staff are very kind, empathetic, & helpful. The optician, Guillermo is very knowledgeable & is skilled in his craft. I'm so glad this place and doctor are still around! Needless to say, I will not be going back to the other place again.

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.
