Treatment is important to control pressure. Interesting fact about glaucoma is that it takes 15 years on an average to progress from early damage to blindness with an Intraocular pressure of 21-25 mmHg, 7 years with and IOP of 25-30 mmHg and 3 years with more than 30 mmHg. Eye pressure varies between the times of a day, it is usually high in the morning and low in the evening. Patients without glaucoma vary 4mmHg during a day, while the ones who have glaucoma tend to vary more. This means that it can take years for the pressure to damage vision. You have enough time to find out if you have glaucoma so you should use this time wisely and visit a doctor regularly.
We know that Lasik helps to clear your vision and get rid of glasses and lenses but that’s not all. Reading vision can also be treated with Lasik. During this procedure, a surgeon corrects refractive errors in one eye and leaves the other one slightly nearsighted. As a result, a person can see distant objects clearly with the eye which was fully corrected and can also has a sharp near vision without sunglasses due to having a slightly nearsighted eye. This technique is also called Laser Blended Vision. After this procedure eyes effectively work together providing good vision at near and far distances. The effect of this procedure lasts anywhere between 5-10 years, but can be adjusted for several times.
Cataract causes blurriness and sometimes vision loss. There is a controversy about whether cataracts can be prevented or not. Many studies offer that certain nutrients may reduce risk of cataracts. One large study showed that high dietary intakes of vitamin E and carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin significantly decreased risks of cataract. So it is recommended to eat food that contains them like: sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach, kale and other leafy vegetables. Other studies have shown that vitamin C and food that contains omega 3 acids reduce cataract risks too. Another way to prevent cataracts is to wear sunglasses that protect you from UV rays when you are outdoor.
