Most people do not think about their vision when they can see clearly. They do begin to get concerned, however, when they start experiencing blurry vision, halos, double vision, or pain. Not only can such problems be annoying and make it hard to read, drive or perform daily activities as usual, but they can be indications of a larger issue. When potential symptoms of an eye condition present themselves, an ophthalmologist can assist in addressing the underlying issue.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, causing vision loss. Currently, it is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States. Usually, when we talk about glaucoma in America, we’re referring to the type called open-angle glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma causes a build-up of fluid in your eye. It puts pressure on your optic nerve and can eventually cause you to lose your eyesight.
Do you suffer from farsightedness or nearsightedness? Prescription eyeglasses or corrective lenses are not your only answers to these common eye conditions. These types of refractive errors in vision can be easily corrected with laser eye surgery procedures like SMILE and LASIK. In fact, in many cases, patients can go back to work the very next day. Why not enjoy improved eyesight as the latest laser eye surgery procedures are minimally invasive and associated with very short downtimes?
