You need a healthy macula to read, recognize faces, and perform a variety of other activities that may require a clear vision. There are a variety of medications, devices, and procedures that can help manage the symptoms of age-related macular degeneration.

Do You Know the Symptoms of Glaucoma?
(http://ow.ly/MlX730mFSLi)

Open-angle glaucoma, which occurs much more frequently than angle-closure glaucoma, is a degenerative eye condition that can slowly rob you of your vision over time. At first, you may not notice any significant symptoms, but vision loss becomes more apparent as the disease progresses. As glaucoma continues, it gradually begins limiting the patient's peripheral vision, and will eventually reduce vision to little more than a small central area before ultimately resulting in total blindness. Regular eye exams can help identify glaucoma in its early stages.

Computer Screen Fatigue? Here's How You Find Relief
(http://ow.ly/f4zM30mFSLh)

People who spend long periods of time staring at a computer screen are prone to experience eyestrain, headache, dry eyes, blurry vision, and other uncomfortable sensations; this group of symptoms is referred to as computer vision syndrome or digital eyestrain. If this sounds familiar, consider wearing special lenses that help filter out blue light and make your vision as clear as possible. Vision therapy may also be able to help — talk to your local optometrist for more details and personalized treatment options.

Experiencing Dry Eye? This Might Be Why
(http://ow.ly/WfdC30mFSLe)

The tears that lubricate your eyes consist of a combination of water, oils, mucus, and antibodies that help protect against infection. If you don't have a sufficient amount of any of these compounds, it could cause you to experience the uncomfortable sensations of dry eye. Artificial tear drops are a quick fix for temporary cases of dry eye, but you should see an optometrist for a comprehensive diagnostic exam if dry eye is a recurring problem for you. Eyes that lack sufficient lubrication are more prone to infection and damage.

How to Manage the Symptoms of Astigmatism
(http://ow.ly/fbAO30mFSL8)

Astigmatism is a refractive error of the eye that is caused by an unusual or imperfect curvature of the lens or cornea of the eye. This inhibits your eye's ability to refract (bend) light waves properly, making it difficult to see objects clearly at virtually any distance. Fortunately, astigmatism is easily corrected with the use of contact lenses or eyeglasses. If left untreated, astigmatism can lower a person's quality of life, making it challenging to do well in professional or academic activities.

What to Expect Ahead of Your Next Eye Exam
(http://ow.ly/qSAj30mFSL6)

Do you know many people first learn about serious health problems like diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), and even cancer during a regular checkup with their optometrist? You may even currently have a condition that could lead to blindness and not even know it. During a comprehensive eye exam, you can expect your optometrist to take you through a series of visual acuity tests that check for color blindness, focusing problems, and other aspects of vision. If pupil dilation is part of the exam, expect some mild discomfort due to an increased sensitivity to light.

Symptoms And Signs Of Uveitis
(http://ow.ly/Sfcu50jDrM3)

Uveitis is an eye disorder resulting from inflammation in the uvea, a layer of the eye. This specific layer is highly vascularized which means that it contains many blood vessels, and uveitis may lead to permanent loss of vision if the condition is not diagnosed and treated early.

Symptoms and signs of uveitis may include redness of the eye, blurry vision, pain, sensitivity to light, and sometimes cloudy vision. If you are seeking treatment for an eye disorder or vision problem, contact the experienced team at Great Hills Eye Care.
