Your Eye Health is Important, Learn More Here

Eye health is an important part of any individual's life. When problems develop, individuals need appropriate treatment to address the underlying condition and start encouraging good health. By recognizing possible complications and going through a comprehensive eye exam, individuals catch potential concerns early and start an appropriate treatment program.

Cataracts

Cataracts refer to clouding that occurs on the lens of the eyes. The clouding causes the vision to dim or results in blurry vision. It is most common in older adults, but can occur at any age. Individuals can treat the cataracts when they catch the problem early during an eye exam.

Dry Eye

Dry eye impacts many lives and occurs at any age. It often relates to hormonal changes, so it is common in women during pregnancy or as a side effect while taking certain medications. It also occurs when the eyes do not produce enough natural tears. Treating the condition is easy, but it worsens when left untreated.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma occurs when the pressure in the eyes builds up and causes damage to the eyes. It does not have obvious symptoms in early stages, but it does cause damage that gradually results in a loss of vision. By treating the condition early, individuals slow the possible damage or prevent further damage. Treatment options depend on the severity of the symptoms and the amount of pressure in the eyes.

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration refers to a type of gradual deterioration of a portion of the eyes call the macula. The macula is the central part of the retina and the deterioration causes a loss of vision. When ignored, the problem worsens and individuals gradually lose their vision. While the problem occurs at different ages, it is common among older adults and seniors.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a problem that occurs as a directly result of high blood sugar levels. When an individual with diabetes notices a change to their vision, it does not always relate to severe reactions to changes in blood glucose. Unfortunately, a high blood sugar level increases the risk of damage to the retina. By managing blood sugar levels, an individual reduces the risk of losing his or her vision, but the eyes require appropriate treatment and exams to catch the problem before it worsens.

Seeking Treatment Delaware and Maryland

At the Lavenburg Medical Group, we recognize that patients face a variety of different situations. That is why we recommend regular and comprehensive eye exams. A simple eye exam does not always catch the underlying problems. By going through a comprehensive exam, individuals help an eye doctor catch the problem before it worsens. As a general rule, you want an eye exam once or twice per year. Always obtain an exam if you notice any changes to your vision.

Your eyes are an important part of your perception of the world. By treating them carefully and getting regular exams, you prevent severe health concerns and protect your vision. To learn more about our eye exams, contact us today.
