The Physician Within: Eye Problems
September 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
As we add years, cleaning our eyeglasses doesn’t always help our vision. There are so many eye issues that appear with age, it’s important to know what can be prevented and when to seek professional help.
We might prevent corneal abrasions. We might self-treat for presbyopia (rapid onset loss of reading focus).
But here’s a list of serious issues we cannot detect or treat on our own:
- Macular degeneration—either wet or dry forms
- Dry eye
- Diabetic retinopathy
These eye troubles require professional treatment, or they could lead to permanent blindness. Most of us have or will eventually have one or more such vision problems. Now is the time to learn about them.
