How an Eye Doctor Can Help You Drive Safely

One of the major concerns for people entering their golden years is how age will affect everyday tasks like driving. Operating a car is an activity that requires visual and mental clarity to perform safely. Stephen Wilmarth, MD, offers a number of health and vision correction services to help patients of any age live comfortably with changes to their eyesight.

Only a qualified eye doctor can accurately evaluate your vision and make informed recommendations for improving it.

Many older patients report the following difficulties while driving:

  • Poor night vision

  • Diminished peripheral vision

  • Decreased visual acuity or field of vision

  • Trouble reading signs

  • Glare around headlights, traffic signals, and street lamps

Some of these issues can occur simply due to changes to the eye with age. Others, however, could be symptoms of cataracts and other serious conditions for which seniors are high-risk.

Patients over the age of 60 should visit the eye doctor every year or two. During your annual exam at our Sacramento office, Dr. Wilmarth can evaluate your eyes for health problems and vision loss. Depending on your needs, he can also suggest prospective correction options.

Please contact Wilmarth Eye and Laser Center or call (916) 850-3060 today for a free vision consultation. Dr. Wilmarth serves patients in the Greater Sacramento area including Folsom, Rocklin and Sacramento. We look forward to seeing you in our office.
