Top Eye Sight Problems

1

Uncorrected Refractive Errors - It is a common eye
disorder that occurs when your eyes can't clearly
focus the images from the outside world. It will result
in blurred vision and can lead to visual impairment. It
includes myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and
presbyopia. Treatments include corrective glasses,
contacts or eye surgery such as LASIK.

Cataracts - It is the clouding of the lens in the eye. It
prevents the passage of light through the pupil,
hence, it will affect your vision. It is very common to
older people. It causes 48% of world's total
blindness that is approximately 18 million people.
There are two main surgical techniques for removing
cataracts: extracapsular cataract extraction and
phacoemulsification.

Glaucoma - it is a disease that causes damage to the
optic nerve of your eyes. This condition can get
worse over time. It is also associated with a buildup
of pressure inside the eye. It is a hereditary disease
and may not show up until later in your life.The sad
thing is, glaucoma can't be totally cured but can
only be neutralized. Through regular check up and
maintenance, you can prevent further damages
brought by glaucoma. There are 60.5 million
estimated cases of glaucoma in the world and 4.5
million people are blind because of glaucoma.
