Our eyes perform precision work all the time. They focus on objects that are close-up, zoom in on those off at a distance and have to adjust to different lighting conditions over and over again. We take in more than 80% of our information through the eyes. This is why many people are concerned about eye diseases. There are, indeed, numerous problems that can arise - glaucoma, cataracts or severe squinting – however, a professional ophthalmologist can help in most cases.
For us to be able to manoeuvre through this world, we constantly need to get the most accurate images of our surroundings. Our eyes are the tools that provide us with this information. If they suddenly stop functioning properly, it can make a person very fearful and insecure.
Regardless of the eye disease someone may suffer from, modern medicine today has remedies that can almost always save the eyesight. The most important prerequisite is early detection and diagnosis. Consequently, eye doctors and optometrists recommend everyone see an ophthalmologist for an exam once every year starting at the age of 40. If a disease is discovered in its early stages, counter-measures can be taken before permanent damage occurs.
