Cataracts is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye that affects your vision. Common among older people, cataracts can occur in one or both eyes. Symptoms may include blurred vision, sensitivity to glare, seeing halos around lights, the inability to see well at night, double vision, or frequent changes in your eyeglass prescription. Cataracts can be treated by surgically removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial one.
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions caused by abnormally high pressure in the eye that damage the optic nerve. It is one of the leading causes of blindness in people over 60 but can occur at any age. Since vision loss due to glaucoma cannot be recovered, it is important to undergo regular eye exams that measure eye pressure so it can be detected early and treated appropriately.
Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye problems affecting people with diabetes including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. Diabetic retinopathy causes damage to the blood vessels in the retina’s tissue. Poorly controlled blood sugar is a risk factor. Early symptoms of diabetic eye disease include floaters, blurriness, dark areas of vision, and difficulty perceiving colors. Mild cases can be treated with diligent diabetes management, but advanced cases may require laser treatment or surgery.
