The source of eye problems can be from damage to the eye itself, aging, medication or a condition such as diabetes. But some conditions, such as glaucoma, don’t cause symptoms before vision loss.
Common eye problems:
- blurred vision
loss of sharpness and ability to see small details
small bits of protein drifting in the
clear gel-like portion of the eye
bright circles around
a source of light
- blind spots
dark “holes,” called scotomas
- If you have diabetes, you should have a diabetic retinal exam every year.
- If you’re at risk for glaucoma, you should have a glaucoma screening every year.
