Better Health: Don’t lose sight of eye health

Posted by Tony Brock | Aug 03, 2018 | 0 Comments

While various eye diseases and conditions are not uncommon as people age, any eye problems that go undiagnosed or untreated could cut short a professional driving career. Some eye problems, such as cataracts and glaucoma, can be detected early through regular eye exams.

GLAUCOMA. The optic nerve is vital for good vision, but high pressure in your eye can damage it. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that can lead to optic nerve damage. It's one of the leading causes of blindness.

CATARACTS. A cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens that can make it seem like you're looking through a frosty window. While most cataracts develop slowly and don't affect eyesight immediately, they eventually cause problems. Stronger lighting and glasses can help in the early stages, but surgery may be required as the condition develops.

RETINAL DISEASES. The retina receives and organizes visual information, sending it to your brain through the optic nerve. A wide variety of retinal diseases, most sharing common symptoms, can cause vision problems.
