So when this part is obstructed eye, vision becomes weak and blurred. There are many types of cataracts, and is a fairly common condition that increases with age. The only possible cure cataract and restore a correct view treatment is surgery to eradicate it, but it is only recommended when the patient suffers so severe discomfort that do not allow you to continue your daily life as normal or wearing glasses.

Diabetes is a disease characterized by a significant increase in blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia ), whose symptoms are usually fatigue, emaciation Diabetes is a disease characterized by a significant increase in blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia ), whose symptoms are usually fatigue, emaciation produced in a short time, excessive thirst and urination extreme ( even at night ). This pathology is caused by an alteration of the action of insulin, either because it does not exist or because the patient's pancreas no longer make it. This last case is what causes diabetes mellitus or insulin-dependent (type I diabetes), which appears in childhood. In the case of people with diabetes type I, substitute this lack of insulin treatment to be followed for life, proper diet that allows greater control of blood glucose levels throughout the day and about good habits of physical exercise. In contrast, type II diabetes is a consequence of hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, among other causes. Requires more control over diet that is done and sometimes treatment with oral antidiabetic (pills ). Besides, during gestation can also see the unbalanced blood glucose levels, which causes the called gestational diabetes. ...
Diabetic retinopathy involves an ocular disorder caused by diabetes, which is caused by damage to blood vessels of the retina. This defect often Diabetic retinopathy involves an ocular disorder caused by diabetes, which is caused by damage to blood vessels of the retina. This defect often causes leakage of fluid or blood in the eye, and if the disease progresses important visual disturbances such as blurred vision proliferation occur. The best way to prevent this disorder is to control diabetes (using insulin or other medications), a periodic eye exam (every one to two years), and exercising and maintaining a healthy diet to prevent the occurrence of the diabetes. When the disorder is in an advanced stage it should be treated by applying argon laser of existing lesions in order to prevent loss of vision. ...

This is one of the most common diseases in ophthalmology and is caused by an alteration in the tear film, causing discomfort and itching, eye dryness, grittiness and difficulty opening the eyes in the morning. Also, depending on the degree of drying, this condition is classified into light, medium and severe. In some cases it is a consequence of other diseases, so that their treatment will be closely linked to repairing the initial ailment. If this is an isolated pathology, the most common is to proceed to the replacement of these tears, the body does not produce by itself, provide artificial tears to the eyes the basic information it needs to function properly. They are applied in drops as a salve. ...
Refractive surgery is responsible for changing the anatomy of the eye to correct vision defects such as farsightedness, astigmatism or myopia. There are several types of refractive procedures, most notably of laser surgery, an increasingly common and widespread thanks to the good results and has the proven technical safety of operation. Specifically, refractive laser surgery is to change the size of the cornea (responsible for our vision) through the application of the laser inside. For this it is necessary to lift a layer of corneal tissue, which will be relocated once the intervention and does not require points. ...
The macula is the part of the eye responsible for providing a clear view. As we grow faculties it loses its function, causing macular degeneration, also known as AMD. This is a fairly common ailment after 60 years and can occur at various levels, resulting imperceptible in some cases. Conversely, it can also develop much more virulent causing total and progressive loss of sight. Although there is still no definitive treatment to repair the effects of macular degeneration, it is important to make an early diagnosis to slow its progression. Also, it has been found that consumption of antioxidant vitamins and zinc can contribute to this. ...
We say that someone has a macular hole when the patient suffers a break in the macula, or na very small part of our eye that is located in the center of the retina. The macula is responsible for central vision and provide allows us to capture the details in order to perform such everyday activities like reading. Two types of macular holes that affect the function of a partial or full thickness retina way. On the one hand, there are those that affect the entire retina, called lamellar macular holes and, on the other, those affecting our retina partial way, post-traumatic macular holes. ...
Presbyopia, also known as farsightedness, is a common condition caused by aging of the eye lens, which appears especially from 40 to 45 years. More specifically, it is a lens accommodation, one of the most important parts of the eye to correct vision, and which is responsible for focusing images on the retina so we can see the sharp objects. Therefore presbyopia causes a distorted view of nearby objects, affecting close up view. This condition can be corrected with the use of glasses or contact lenses and surgery. The latter will depend on the patient's age, the state of your lens and eye defect have. Also, there are two techniques for this operation: the use of lasers, and phacoemulsification with intraocular lens placement, in which an artificial lens inside the eye is placed. ...
Vision problems encompass a host of pathologies. The most common are refractive comprising: the nearsightedness or myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. Its causes may be genetically different, due to aging or other diseases such as macular degeneration caused by diabetes. ...
The vitreous humor is located between the inner surface of the retina and the posterior surface of the lens. It is a formed by 99%, water clear, gelatinous liquid. The remaining 1% are proteins, hyaluronic acid, collagen, chloride, sodium, glucose and potassium. Its function is to protect the retina making its surface remains uniform, getting a correct view. Sometimes this becomes opaque gelatinous mass making viewing difficult. When this happens it is necessary to resort to surgery of the vitreous, also known as vitrectomy. This involves removing the vitreous damaged, replacing it with a saline solution. It is a resource used only when vision has decreased considerably and prevents follow a normal rhythm of life for the patient. Besides, this procedure can cause some complications, such as infection, intraocular bleeding and retinal detachment. ...
