LIFE AFTER 40 NEED NOT BE A BLUR

by Standard-Optical Vista:

When was the last time you had your eyes tested?

Are you aware that eye disease development generally starts after the age of 40 and the risk increases with each decade, therefore you should have your eyes examined at regular intervals. Regular eye examinations will help save your vision.

What is Presbyopia?
As we get older we experience a change in our vision, making it difficult to focus on close range work. This is the natural condition called Presbyopia, a Greek word meaning “old vision”. It affects our eyes’ ability to focus. Presbyopia occurs gradually as flexibility is lost in the lens of the eye where focusing takes place.

What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma occurs when fluid in the eye doesn’t drain well and pressure builds up, affecting blood vessels and nerve fibres in the back of the eye. This results in a gradual loss of eyesight. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss.

What is a Cataract?
A Cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye. Symptoms include blurred or double vision; sensitivity to bright light, ghost images and a a frequent need for new eyeglass prescription.
