Age sometimes brings changes in the body that weaken the eyesight of people. Apart from poor vision, people tend to develop certain eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eyes syndrome and blocked tear duct. However, there are some ways to prevent your vision from such major diseases such as regular visits to your eye doctor, proper nutrition and reduced screen time.
Here are the common age-related eye diseases that affect the vision are:
Floaters: Eye floaters are the most common eye condition that usually develops in people as they age. Floaters are tiny, grey or black spots that float across your vision. Generally, floaters are normal but they can cause major issues such as retinal detachment. If you see a sudden onset of floaters, then you should seek help from your eye doctor immediately.
Watery Eyes: Aging adults also struggle with watery eyes, which means having too many tears when their eyes get exposed to bright lights, extreme winds and when the temperature changes. Wearing sunglasses or goggles can solve the problem but it can be increased to other eye infections such as blocked tear duct if left untreated.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration: This is the most common eye disease that contributes to vision loss. Age-related degeneration is characterized by the loss of cells in the central portion of the retina that cause blurred central vision. AMD can be treated in the early stage but the more severe form of AMD can be treated only by laser treatments.
Eyelid Issues: Eyelid issues can be the result of different conditions and diseases. The eyelids protect your eyes from debris, distribute tears and control the amount of light entering the eyes. Tearing, itching, pain and light sensitivity are the common symptoms of eyelid problems. Well, eyelid problems can be treated with surgery or special medication.
Pinkeye (Conjunctivitis): This is a common eye infection that can be caused by a virus or bacteria. Although sometimes it can be caused by irritants or allergic reactions. In children, it is most likely bacterial, and in adults, it is commonly caused by a virus.
If you or any of your loved one is struggling with any eye infections or eye diseases, then it is recommended to opt for immediate care from specialized and experienced eye doctors. There are many types of treatments available when it comes to curing several eye diseases. But when it comes to natural and holistic treatment, homeopathy comes second to none.
Homeopathy is the most effective holistic approach to treat various eye conditions. Whether it is about watery eyes, dry eye syndrome, conjunctivitis, eye floaters, blurred vision, glaucoma or macular degeneration, homeopathy is the best solution for all. Also, as homeopathy does not involve any surgical procedure, thus you don’t need to be worried about post-surgical procedures, any discomfort and side-effects.
