Eye Disorders

People have a higher risk of getting eye disorders as they get older. Most of the time it can’t be cured. However there are many simple ways to prevent these diseases from happening.

Some of the most common eye disorders are listed below.

Cataracts: This is when the eye’s lens (the part of the eye that helps it focus) becomes cloudy and makes everything blurry. That makes it harder to read and do other things.  

Cataract surgery can easily fix this problem and it’s a very safe and simple surgery. The cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear manmade lens which then allows the eye to see clearly again!

Glaucoma: This condition occurs when too much fluid inside the eye begins to build up and cause too much pressure on the eye. The optic nerve, part of the eye which tells the brain, then becomes damaged and causes blindness.  

Glaucoma can’t be cured but you can prevent it from occurring by making sure to attend regular eye-doctor checkups.

Retinal Disorders
: The retina is a layer of tissue in the back of your eye which gives clear vision. The retinal disorders affect this tissue and therefore affects vision and may even cause blindness.

To prevent this, regular eye checkups, living healthily and properly caring for your eyes can help.
