PMF Advanced Proof

by Regina Fancy (2019-12-27)

Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness PMF Advanced Proof Review among African-Americans and is six to eight times more common than in Caucasians. Yearly eye check up's are so important for all eye conditions but they seem especially poignant with Glaucoma because you could already have it. The sooner you are diagnosed, the sooner you will be able to deal with this insidious condition. Retinal problems -The retina is a light sensitive tissue lining the inner surface of the eye which is full of light receptors. When light enters the eye, the retina converts the image into electrical impulses that travel through the optic nerve to the brain where it is decoded as vision. Half of our brain is used for vision. Disorders of the retina are a leading cause of blindness in the United States and many retinal disorders come with age.Age-related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) The disease is just as the name suggests: the degeneration of the macula, which is the centre part of the retina. The macula is responsible for fine, detailed vision, and as it deteriorates, your field of vision narrows until you can't see anything at all. This usually happens gradually, maybe taking many years before reaching total blindness if left completely untreated. There are two types of ARMD - Wet and Dry. Dry ARMD is the more common form and the less severe.
