Eye disease can affect your vision, cause uncomfortable symptoms, and cause permanent vision loss if left untreated.
Unfortunately, many eye diseases don’t show signs in their early stages, so you may have already suffered significant and irreversible vision loss when you begin to notice changes in your vision.
Common Eye Diseases
Maintaining the health of your eyes is essential. If you have been diagnosed with an eye disease or experience symptoms, please make an appointment with our team of eye care professionals today.
AMD is the leading cause of serious vision loss in patients over 50. AMD occurs when the macula, the portion of your retina responsible for color perception and detailed vision, degenerates over time. As AMD worsens, your central vision is slowly lost.
Dry Eye Disease
Dry eye disease is when your eye does not manufacture enough tears, so you’re unable to keep the eye properly lubricated. Not only does this cause itchiness and grittiness, it may also cause an overproduction of tears. Either way, this condition makes it difficult to focus on every day activities.
Glaucoma causes progressive damage to the optic nerve, typically due to high intraocular pressure. Still, it can also occur when your eye pressure is normal. At ClearView Vision Center, we test for glaucoma during every eye exam. Glaucoma affects your eye’s optic nerve, usually due to fluid buildup at the front of the eye, and can quickly cause blindness.
Retinal Tear or Detachment
While most floaters are harmless and caused by tiny pieces of tissue or protein floating around in the clear gel-like fluid that fills your eye (the vitreous). A sudden shower of floaters accompanied by bright light flashes may indicate that you are experiencing a retinal tear or retinal detachment. Retinal detachments require immediate medical attention to prevent permanent vision loss.
