How To Manage Common Eye Problems

By Paula Masi

Nowadays, there are people in their 80′s who still have good eyesight. It means that you need not suffer from poor eyesight as you grow older. It is a given fact, however, that as you age, you will see changes in the way you see and use your eyes. It is a good thing that there are some things you can do to prevent this from happening. One way is to add brighter lights in the places you frequent around the house like the stairways, work counters, and your favorite reading places. In this way, you may assist yourself to see better, thus preventing accidents from happening. Here are the other things you can do:

oRemember to have regular check ups for diseases such as diabetes. Diabetes and other illness can affect the eyesight.

oPut in mind that you need to have a complete eye exam with a specialist every one or two years. Most of these diseases are treatable if detected early.

Some of the common complaints are listed below:

oPresbyopia – This is the loss of the ability of to see things at a close range or to read small prints. This is a normal process that happens in a lifetime. The symptoms of this disease usually occur at the age of forty.

You will notice that people suffering from presbyopia hold their reading material at an arm’s-length. Some are reported to have headaches while reading or doing their close work.

oFloaters – These are tiny specks or spots that float across the field of vision. Most people see these specks in well-lit rooms or outdoors on a sunny day.

oHaving too much tears – It may come from being sensitive to wind, light, or temperature changes.

Most people don’t know this problem by its technical name: ambolyopia. Its commonly known name is lazy eye. This problem is due to the lack of central vision in one eye. Symptoms of lazy eye can be vague, but might include a noticeable tendency to favor one eye, difficulty seeing out of one eye, or bumping into things on one side. The problem results when both eyes aren’t used together.

If children under age five lack visual stimulation, lazy eye can develop. It does not go away on its own and requires professional treatment. It’s crucial to diagnose and treat lazy eye when the child is still very young. After the eye is fully developed (around age six), vision correction is unlikely to occur. Unfortunately, there are no lenses to correct lazy eye.
