The average person blinks between 16 and 20 times a minute. Despite blinking many times, we do not usually realize it, since the eyes are organs that we often take for granted. Also, many people are not aware of the care that the eyes require to have and maintain good visual health.
Having visual health implies that there are no diseases in your eyesight or in the structure of the eyes, meaning that one enjoys good visual acuity. It is the absence of visual alterations, which may keep the person from achieving a physical, structural, and functional state of social well-being.
The most common eye problems include:
Some of these eye problems are minor, however, there are others that can cause permanent vision loss, so it is important to always be on the lookout for symptoms such as the following
Also, children can find it difficult to recognize the symptoms on their own, so as a parent, it’s important to be on the lookout for any of the following signs of eye disease:
If you notice any of these symptoms in your eyes or those of your children, contact your doctor to prevent the symptoms from triggering further health problems. It is important to mention that the tasks of an optometrist and those of an ophthalmologist are commonly confused, so it is common for people to contact and schedule appointments with the wrong specialist when making a consultation.
An ophthalmologist diagnoses, prevents and treats eye diseases, while the optometrist tests vision and detects refractive errors that are corrected with contact lenses or prescription lenses.
On the other hand, optometrists find refractive errors in your eyes, which arise when the cornea suffers deformations in its structural characteristics, causing light to bend at strange angles, distorting the patient’s vision. The inability to focus your eyes is a refractive error and is one of the most common problems for the eye. The most common refractive errors are myopia (poor vision at a distance), farsightedness (poor vision up close), and astigmatism.
In our day-to-day life, there are small actions that we can take to keep our eye health in good conditions.
These nutrients support visual and general health. These nutrients are commonly obtained from citrus fruits, vegetable oils, nuts, whole grains, dark-colored vegetables, and cold-water fish. They also detail the relation between diabetes and visual health, since excess glucose, caused by this disease, has negative implications for the eyes.
Visual health, although sometimes not given the necessary attention, is a very important part of people’s general health. This is why it is extremely important to pay attention to any possible sign or symptom of any disease, in order to go with your doctor and avoid any health complications. Did you know all this information? Do you get eye checkups often enough?
