Most common ocular diseases

The pathologies may vary according to age, family history or the relationship with other diseases already present, such as diabetes. Some of the most common conditions in adults are:

  • Presbyopia or tired eyesight: It is the difficulty to focus on near vision.
  • Glaucoma: A disease of the optic nerve that is characterized by a loss of the field of vision.
  • Cataracts: slow, progressive visual loss.
  • Age-related macular degeneration (AMD): a disease that affects the central part of the retina.
  • Dry eye: a common eye disorder that occurs when there is a lack of lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye.
  • Diabetic retinopaty: vascular disease secondary to diabetes.

Some of these can be asymptomatic, which means that an ophthalmological check-up can detect them and treat them early.

The importance of ophthalmological check-ups

As we get older there are changes in vision and even if there are no visible symptoms they can present different ocular pathologies.

An ophthalmologic checkup consists of a previous visit with the optometrist, who will check, among other things, the patient’s visual acuity, intraocular pressure or pupillary reflexes. The ophthalmologist will then perform an exhaustive eye examination, to detect eye pathologies early on and, if necessary, establish treatment.

The ophthalmological checkups in adults allow us to control most of these and prevent them before they become irreversible. For this reason, specialists recommend a visit to the ophthalmologist annually.
