Baby boomers are the generation born between 1946 – 1964 and are known for enjoying the sweet perks of success, travel, sports & leisure activities and most importantly consumer goods like eyewear!
They control over 80% of personal financial assets and more than half all consumer spending. If you’re a baby boomer reading this blog, you’re blessed! Some choose to continue working where as others are enjoying the fruits of retired life.
It is interesting to note however, how baby boomers did not grow up with the technology we are used to today. Yet they are extremely tech savvy and love learning more! Their youthful attitude and deep financial pockets guide their pursuit to utilize emerging technology to help them keep young.
One such way their youthful personas are retained is through making sure they have 20/20 vision always! They are the perfect candidates for customized progressive lenses, high-end frames and contact lenses! Yes you heard that right!
As healthcare professionals, we make sure that we keep their aesthetic needs in mind while considering the specific needs of their age group.
1) Understanding The Aging Eye
It is important to conduct a more comprehensive eye exam which would include refraction (which is the prescription), pupil dilation (drops to see the inside of the eye) and checking the Intra Ocular pressures for Glaucoma. All of the above can be done by a licensed Optometrist. It is highly recommended to have this done at least once every two years unless you are advised otherwise. We, at Crystalline Eyewear have two optometrists who are available to perform the eye exams at different times. CALL US TODAY for an appointment.
