Maintaining the health of the eyes has been very difficult in the past. For a few centuries, corrective eyeglasses have been available, but performing surgery to heal cataracts and other eye problems have almost always been either impossible or extremely difficult with a low chance of success. Today, however, besides knowing more about how the eyes work and what each of us can do individually to take care of them, eye care doctors are able to perform a wide variety of procedures to correct virtually every type of eye trouble known to man. Many of these issues were once thought to be untreatable. These include:
Glaucoma is an eye problem that usually affects older people. This eye condition can completely rob the eyes of their sight, and the frightening thing is that usually, by the time you begin to experience the symptoms of glaucoma, it is too late to save your vision. The good news is that with early detection and proper treatments, your eyesight can be saved. Glaucoma is caused by too much pressure on the optic nerve, and there are various eye care treatments, both surgical and nonsurgical, to reduce the pressure. The treatment that works will vary from person to person.
One of the most common places that this autoimmune disease affects is the area behind and around the eyes. The resulting inflammation will cause swelling, often giving the eyes a bulging appearance and making the eyelids retract. There are a few different types of surgery that can be undergone, to relieve this condition and get your eyes back to a normal, healthy appearance.
Lasik surgery is probably the most reliable and effective way of improving your vision. After undergoing this laser surgery procedure, you will never need to wear your glasses or contact lenses again!
