Our Approach: Compassionate Vision Care for Seniors

Our Approach: Compassionate Vision Care for Seniors

At Matossian Eye Associates, we serve patients of all ages, including many older adults who are struggling with age-related vision problems. Recently, I was fortunate to enroll in a physiology course, which taught me an incredible amount about the life cycle of our bodies. In addition to learning about the basic structures inside the human body, I have also gained a better understanding of the aging process and the age-related vision problems seniors experience.

For our senior patients, we focus on offering personalized care that will promote healthy eyes and excellent vision. We understand how difficult it can be to preserve one’s eyesight past the age of 60, and this is why we prefer a hands-on, proactive approach. 

For example, the ophthalmic assistants at our practice are constantly training on new technology and double-checking our protocols so that we can provide world-class care to our senior patients. At the end of every week, the ophthalmic assistants and front desk employees discuss all of our practices to see where improvements can be made. Whether that is reducing our wait times or streamlining patient communications, we want to be sure that everyone who walks out of our office has peace of mind and a smile on their face. 

Here at Matossian Eye Associates, we also roleplay various phone conversations and in-office scenarios so that we are well-prepared. Over time, these roleplays result in incremental improvements that can make a big difference. Our senior patients are understandably concerned with their vision, and they deserve peace of mind. Even when those concerns are amplified following an unwelcome diagnosis, our team is ready to tackle those challenges through advanced technology and extensive training.

If you or a loved one is struggling with vision problems, then it is time to seek out professional help. Please call us today or schedule an appointment online to learn more about all of the services and treatments that we offer. We specialize in helping seniors address a wide variety of common vision problems including glaucoma, cataracts, dry eyes, and more.
