Itchy eyes, red eyes, pink eye, cataracts and glaucoma are all diseases or conditions of the eye that can make your life very uncomfortable or in some cases can lead to massive vision impairment, even blindness. Here are a few of the common conditions and diseases that your optometrist and/or an ophthalmologist may diagnose and help you to overcome.
From an early age you should visit your optometrist regularly to make sure that your eyes are in good working order. Diseases and general ageing factors can cause eye problems to creep up on you, but your eye doctor can help catch them in time.
Everyone's eye sight degenerates at differing degrees over their lifetime and a lot of us reach the point of having to wear prescription glasses or have corrective eye surgery. Should you recognise the need to have an eye test you will need to consult an eye specialist.
