Regular eye examinations, in addition to determining vision prescriptions for glasses or contact lenses, are essential for timely diagnosis of eye diseases and disorders. Good medicine at any age, regular eye examinations are particularly recommended for individuals experiencing vision problems, as well as those with no symptoms but having a family history of eye diseases or difficulties, or having reached the age of forty, when natural vision changes begin to occur.

Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. With age, the proteins of the lens clump together and block light making vision blurry or hazy. This gradually progresses to cause symptoms such as glare, halos around lights, double vision in one eye, decreased night vision and fading of colors affecting such activities as driving, reading, watching television, golfing, painting, and more. The most common cause of cataract formation is aging, however, there are several other risk factors. Click read more below to continue reading.

Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Central vision is needed for seeing objects clearly and for common daily tasks such as reading and driving.

AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that allows you to see fine detail. AMD is a leading cause of vision loss in Americans 60 years of age and older.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye condition that develops when too much fluid pressure builds up inside of the eye. The increased pressure, called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve, which transmits images to the brain. If damage to the optic nerve from high pressure continues, glaucoma will cause loss of vision and eventual blindness. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the United States, especially for older people. But loss of sight from glaucoma can often be prevented with early treatment.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness among adults. Approximately 25% of diabetics have some form of the disease. The risk of developing diabetic retinopathy increases with the duration of the disease and it is estimated that 90% of diabetics may have some form of diabetic retinopathy over the course of their life. However, only a small percentage of those developing diabetic retinopathy have serious vision problems and even a smaller percentage become blind.
