Achieving Good Vision
While scientists celebrate the recent announcement of a reduction in the size of the hole in the ozone layer, one of our most delicate organs remains exposed and at risk to the dangers of UV radiation.
“I’m pretty excited,” says Janine Hobson, Optometrist from YOUNG EYES, of her upcoming volunteer eye-care trip to assist communities on Sumba Island, 400km east of Bali, Indonesia.
This is often caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. One of the many new treatments is a Manuka honey drop or Gel. Do you suffer from stingy itchy eyes?
Unlike many eye diseases and disorders, glaucoma is especially concerning because it can begin to take your vision away without you even knowing it is happening.
In fact, glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world. There are often no immediate or obvious symptoms of glaucoma. The disease comes on gradually, so vision loss is hard to detect, and any sight that is lost through glaucoma can never be retrieved.
