Macular Degeneration

MacularDegenerationMacular degeneration is usually an age-related eye disease that can result in significant vision loss for those who suffer from it. Macular degeneration occurs when the macula, or center part of the retina, begins to deteriorate.

Macular degeneration may not result in total blindness but it can significantly impact a person’s ability to see clearly. There is treatment for macular degeneration depending on the form you have. Dry macular degeneration can’t be reversed. However, there is macular degeneration treatment available for the wet form.

If you have been diagnosed with macular degeneration or if the eye disease runs in your family, it is important to see an eye doctor on a regular basis to monitor changes in your vision. This can be done with a comprehensive eye exam by a professional optometrist.

Human eye is an amazing organ that most of us rely on every waking moment of the day.

Color Blindness

Color BlindnessContrary to the name, there are very few who suffer from color blindness who do not see any color at all. Most people who are color blind will only be prevented from seeing certain shades of a color or will recognize certain colors as an incorrect color. It is rare that a color blind person will only be able to see grey, black and white.

 

What Causes Color Blindness?

Color blindness occurs when the there is an issue with the three types of cone cells within the macula that sense red, green and blue colors. If the cone cell is missing, the person won’t see that color at all. If something is damaged within the cone cell, the person may only see certain shades of that color or may interpret that color as another such as confusing blue and green.

 

Will Color Blindness Worsen Over Time?

Color blindness does not get progressively worse over time. It never changes and cannot be corrected. Most people who are color blind have to learn to adapt to a world of color in other ways such as memorizing the order of color on traffic lights.

 

The human eye is an amazing organ that most of us rely on every waking moment of the day.  From morning till night, our vision allows us to see beautiful Florida sunsets, our beloved family and much more.  Here at 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore, our main goal is to keep you up-to-date on everything related to eye care and eye health.
