Preserving Your Vision Against Eye Disease  

Knowing the signs and symptoms of some common eye diseases could help you preserve your vision. The best treatment for eye diseases is prevention, which is why it is vital to have your eyes checked regularly.

Family history, lifestyles, and existing medical conditions can contribute to your risk factors. Your optometrist will assess the health of your eyes at your routine eye exam and ask questions that could help with early diagnosis.

Common Eye Diseases

More than 4.2 million Americans over the age of 40 are considered legally blind or live with low vision, and age-related eye diseases are the leading cause.

Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss in the United States, and although they can occur at any age, they are more common in older adults.

Your eye has a crystalline lens that allows light to pass through to your retina. When this lens becomes cloudy, it’s a sign that a cataract is forming. It can happen in one or both eyes at the same time.

Your optometrist may be able to adjust your prescription to help you see through the cataract. However, you may eventually require surgery to replace the clouded lens with an artificial clear one.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can damage the optic nerve, and the most common type is open-angle glaucoma. This type of glaucoma presents itself as patchy blind spots in your outermost (peripheral) vision.

Usually, you will not notice signs and symptoms of glaucoma until it is impacting your sight. Treatments are available to prevent its progression, but the vision loss caused by glaucoma is irreversible.

Acute angle-closure glaucoma is considered a medical emergency. If you experience the following symptoms, please speak to your optometrist right away or go to your local emergency clinic.

  • Severe headache
  • Eye pain
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Blurred vision
  • Halos around lights
  • Eye redness

Your macula is responsible for clear central vision. Macular degeneration affects this vision, causing it to appear blurry, dark, or distorted.

Macular degeneration comes in 2 forms:


  • Typically progresses slowly
  • Early stages don’t present symptoms
  • Progression can sometimes be slowed


  • More severe
  • Typically causes faster vision loss
  • Treatments sometimes available

Common Eye Diseases

If you’re concerned about your risk of eye disease or living with an eye disease, you can talk to your optometrist at any time about how to manage symptoms, find treatments, or prevent further vision loss.

In many cases, vision loss cannot be reversed, but the progression of many diseases can be slowed.

Our optometrists will assess your eyes at every eye exam to check for early signs and symptoms of eye disease. The sooner an eye disease is diagnosed, the more likely we can help prevent further damage.

Ensure your eyes are healthy and that you have clear vision by booking your comprehensive eye exam.
