9780743215039: The Aging Eye

Do You Have Trouble Reading Menus?
Do You Find It Difficult To Distinguish
Between Black And Dark Blue?
Do You Worry Excessively About Glare
When Driving At Night?

One out of every five of us is affected by impaired vision by the time we turn sixty-five. To help you preserve your vision now -- and beyond -- The Aging Eye discusses three common eye disorders that pose the greatest threat to your vision: cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration (Amd). This valuable guide will help you determine whether you are at risk of developing these disorders, describes their symptoms, and discusses diagnosis and the latest treatments.

You will learn:

  • What to expect after cataract surgery
  • How glaucoma often progresses in the early stages without symptoms
  • Whether you may be suffering from dry or wet Amd
  • If laser surgery is right for you
  • How to deal with presbyopia, dry eye syndrome, floaters and flashes, and retinal detachment

Finally, practical suggestions will inform you what you can do now to preserve your vision, from fine-tuning your diet and stopping smoking to wearing sunglasses and protecting your eyes from the ravages of diabetes.
A valuable user-friendly guide for everyone over fifty, The Aging Eye will give you the knowledge you need to safeguard your sight.

About the Author:

Harvard Medical School is a center of medical expertise comprised of dozens of affiliated hospitals, clinics, research foundations, and publication centers. Throughout its history, Harvard's doctors have made important medical breakthroughs, including the discovery of anesthesia, the first human organ transplantation (Nobel Prize), and the discovery of the polio virus (Nobel Prize).

From Library Journal:

A lot can go wrong with your eyes as you get older. Some age-related eye conditions, such as presbyopia (loss of the ability to see close objects, which strikes people in middle age), are easily corrected. Others, such as macular degeneration, are much more serious and can be difficult to treat. Expanding and updating a Harvard Medical School Special Health Report, this book provides healthcare consumers with clear explanations of the various vision disorders that may occur later in life. As some diseases, such as glaucoma, may occur initially without symptoms, the text stresses the importance of regular visits to the eye doctor. Other preventative measures (proper diet, avoiding excessive sunlight, etc.) are also discussed. Because it is well researched, up-to-date, and prevention oriented, this comprehensive handbook stands out among other popular books on geriatric ophthalmology. Strongly recommended for all libraries. Jeffrey Beall, Univ. of Colorado Lib., Denver
