Eyes are one of the most delicate parts of your visible body. Minor changes in our lifestyle directly and indirectly affect our eyes adversely.
Some eye problems are minor and fleeting. But some lead to a permanent loss of vision. Common eye problems include
- Cataracts - clouded lenses
- Glaucoma - damage to the optic nerve from too much pressure in the eye
- Retinal disorders - problems with the nerve layer at the back of the eye
- Conjunctivitis - an infection also known as pinkeye
Proper care and regular check up are essential to retain healthy eyes, because eye diseases do not always have symptoms. Early detection and treatment could prevent vision loss. If you have a sudden change in vision or everything looks dim or if you see flashes of light you should see an eye care professional immediately. Other symptoms that need quick attention are pain, double vision, fluid coming from the eye and inflammation.
