What are Eye Disorders?
Conditions that interfere with vision are incredibly common and wide ranging in the abnormalities that cause them.
Short sightedness and far sightedness are usually corrected with glasses or contact lenses however there are many other conditions that are much more difficult to correct. There are conditions such as astigmatism and Keratoconus which manifest in the form of a misshaped cornea, these conditions are unlikely to be reversed with supplementation but there progression can be slowed.
Cataracts are the lens of the eye becoming cloudy to stop vision, there is a simple surgical operation to have the cataracts removed however keeping the eye well nourished can help to prevent this condition occurring.
Retinopathy , usually caused by diabetes, is deteriorating of the blood vessels in the eye, which also causes the other tissues of the eye to receive less nutrients than required until the point where they also begin to fail. This condition can be assisted with diet and supplementation.
Macular degeneration is a condition usually associated with age, that causes the vision to progressively become more blurry, scar tissue build up and thinning tissues are the cause of this condition, if the eyes are kept well nourished the deterioration of these tissues will slow greatly.
Glaucoma is a condition where the intraocular pressure builds to become great enough to crush the optic nerve, this can cause rapid vision loss or be a slowly progressing issue. The condition can be caused by inflammation of the eye, blocked blood vessels or an injury to the eye. Glaucoma can cause blindness, certain botanicals can help alleviate the pressure within the eye and delay the effects of this condition.
