Vision Problems-Cataract and Glaucoma
« on: August 28, 2012, 07:08:03 AM »
Poor vision can be due to a number of problems, some more serious than others. For example, retinal detachment, cataracts, and glaucoma are three conditions that need medical attention.
Cataracts:
Cataracts develop when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy. Normally the lens is clear and allows light to pass through easily. A cloudy lens will decrease light levels that reach the retina and slowly cause vision loss. Fortunately, a doctor can surgically remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a clear plastic lens. This will often restore the light level passing through the lens and improve the patients’ vision.
Glaucoma:
When fluid pressure builds up inside the eye, a patient is diagnosed with glaucoma. Glaucoma can lead to a decrease in vision and eventually causes blindness. Special eye drops and oral medications are often prescribed to help reduce the intraocular pressure. If eye drops and medications are not capable of controlling the pressure, surgery may be the only option. During glaucoma surgery, the doctor will use a laser to create tiny holes in the eye where the cornea and iris meet. It is hoped this will increase fluid drainage from the eye and decrease the pressure inside the eye.
