Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens that negatively impacts vision.

Some of the most common symptoms of cataracts include:

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage an eye's optic nerve, resulting in the loss of vision. With early detection and treatment, however, you can protect your eyes against this. Eye pressure is a major risk factor for optic nerve damage. Increases in eye pressure can cause the optic nerve to become damaged and vision loss may result. High blood pressure is one of the risk factors for optic nerve damage.
