Eye Exams Can Save Your Eyes- Centre for Advanced and Sophisticated Eye Care
Eye Health is a very common problem and it also ignored by 80% Indian. Because of eye problems, like macular degeneration, often occur gradually, you might not notice anything amiss until it is too late. This is why getting regular eye exams is crucial to maintaining your ocular health.
Common problems that are easier to treat if detected early include:
Cataracts – Caused by UV light exposure
Diabetic Retinopathy – Damage to blood vessels caused by poorly controlled diabetes
Glaucoma – Has multiple causes and can only be controlled with early detection
Macular Degeneration – Multiple causes, including blue light exposure and screen time
