Centre

Eye specialist centre emphasizes on the prevention, early detection and treatment of eye conditions.

Many common eye conditions, such as glaucoma, cataract, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration, do not cause symptoms in the early stages. However, they can lead to irreversible and sometimes, severe loss of vision if left untreated.

These eye conditions can occur to anyone, although those who are older or have hypertension and diabetes, are at higher risk.

How to Protect Your Eyesight?

Protecting your eyesight is one of the most important things you can do to help maintain your quality of life.

The risk factors of damage eyesight include:

  • Diabetes
  • Macular degeneration
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Cornea or retina infections
  • Glaucoma

These are the tips to avoid vision loss and safeguard your vision:

  • Find out if you are at higher risk for eye disease – Family health history of diabetes or high blood pressure or age over 60 will increase the risk of sight-threatening eye disease.
  • Have regular physical exams checks on diabetes or high blood pressure – Diabetes and high blood pressure can lead to vision loss from diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and eye strokes.
  • Look for warning signs of changes in vision – See a doctor immediately if you have a hazy vision, red eye, seeing in low light condition as it may be the sign of causing vision loss.
  • Exercise – Exercise helps to reduce age-related macular degeneration by up to 70%.
  • Avoid harmful UV light – Always wear sunglasses that shield your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. This may help to reduce the risk of cataracts, pinguecula and other eye diseases.
  • Eat right – Fruits and dark green vegetables contain antioxidants that can reduce the risk of cataracts. Fish rich in omega-3 can reduce the risk of developing macular degeneration.
  • Go for eye examination annually – An eye exam like dilating pupils can determine the risk for major eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, which has no early warning signs or symptoms. An eye exam also can ensure that your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses is up to date.
  • Do not smoke – Smoking is at high risk of developing age-related degeneration, cataracts, uveitis and other eye diseases.
