Regular, comprehensive eye exams from your ophthalmologist is especially important for older adults. That’s because as you get older, you become more susceptible to cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. A baseline eye examination is recommended for adults at age 40, and earlier for those with underlying medical conditions that increase their risk. Adults 65 and older should have their eyes checked at least every two years, or as recommended by their eye doctor.

The human eye only sees three colors: red, blue and green. All other colors are a combination of these. Your retina, which is covered by millions of light-sensitive cells, transforms the entering light into nerve impulses and sends signals to the brain to produce the familiar sensations of color.

As one of the most richly innervated tissues in the human body, the cornea of your eye is exquisitely sensitive. That’s why even the smallest corneal abrasion can cause significant pain and discomfort.
