Your Vision as a Senior Citizen
As people get older they need to ensure that their eye health becomes a priority. Having the wrong glasses can affect day-to-day life and can even be dangerous for certain activities such as driving (especially at night) or walking when it can be easy to miss a kerb or other hazards. Some people may have bifocals when it may be better to have different prescriptions for close up and distances purposes - this can avoid potential trips or falls.
At Barracloughs we have experienced Opticians who can carry out a thorough eye examination and provide the correct remedy to ensure you get the very most out of life.
It is important to have regular eye examinations so any symptoms can be identified at an early stage. We now offer retinal photography, which is an advanced new method of checking for such conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, age related macular degeneration and other conditions. A permanent record can be kept and early detection of any problems can be made by comparing year on year.
We stock a comprehensive range of spectacles plus a range of options including anti-reflection coatings which are very beneficial for night driving.
