Two Common Eye Problems & Their Treatments

There are several eye conditions that are treated regularly every year. Most patients experience at least one of these common conditions in their lifetime. We often forget to take care of our eyes as we become adults. The old saying “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” often plays its part when it comes to the eyes.
Those who play sports may have a greater likelihood of getting common eye injuries like detached retina or snow blindness if they are actively outdoors. Viral and bacterial infections like pink eye are also common. Below are a few more common eye conditions and their treatment options.
1) Dry Eyes: Dry Eye is a very common condition that can be a problem for many patients. Whether it’s mild or severe it can stop or reduce your daily activities.
Treatments: Some known treatments for Dry Eye are over the counter drops. Artificial tears or even a new non-invasive procedure called LipiFlow.

2) Cataracts: Cataracts quite often affect those who are increased in age. Cataracts are a cloud that forms over the eyes lens. It progresses over time and decreases vision of the patient who has it.
Treatment: Treatment for advanced Cataracts is most often surgery where the natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear, artificial lens. Cataracts often develop more rapidly and deteriorate the vision more quickly in those who suffer with other medical conditions like Type 2 diabetes.

Understanding Eye Diseases & Treatments

For many of us the eye is a faint thought in our heads, few are curious about how the eye works. However those who take the time to learn find that the eye is a complicated machine that when functioning properly work well. However if there are any added complications the eye can loose function quickly.

The most common eye diseases & conditions come from hiccups in the function of the cornea or lens. First to understand the conditions you must understand the cornea how it works and what it’s purpose is. The Cornea helps protect the eye from dust, debris, and other irritants from entering the eye. The cornea is very important to help bend the light entering your eye to help with focusing images. The cornea is like a camera lens, clear, durable, and strong. The internal lens of the eye also helps to focus images onto the retina so we see clearly.

There are many conditions that occur because the cornea or lens is either not functioning right, damaged, or merely building up too much debris on the lens.

Keratoconus: Keratoconus is caused because the cornea itself is changing shape causing a distortion within your vision.

Cataracts: Cataracts is caused because the natural lens of the eye of becomes cloudy. Over time it can severely distort your vision.

There are several treatment options for Keratoconus, Cataracts, and other eye conditions. For more information on your treatment and treatment options visit: www.AllAboutVision.com
