Risk Factors for Eye Diseases:
  • Diabetes mellitus:
    Causes early cataract, squint and retinal haemorrhages and swelling.
  • High Blood pressure and raised lipid profile: Causes retinal swelling in extreme cases and increases the risk of macular degeneration.
  • Smoking:
    times increase in risk of cataract and macular degeneration.
  • Alcohol:
    Frequent consumption increases risk of cataract and precipitate angle closure glaucoma.

Eye Care for Children:

Normal visual development requires the brain to receive equally clear, focused images from both eyes simultaneously for the visual pathways to develop properly. Any problem in the vision pathway can lead to low vision in either one or both eyes. An early timely detection of the problem can help in rectifying or reducing the low vision or ocular abnormality.

Vision screening and eye examination are vital for the detection of conditions that distort or suppress the normal visual image, which may lead to inadequate school performance or, even worse, blindness in children.

Examination of the eyes can be performed at any age, beginning in the newborn period, and should be performed for a child at the earliest age that is practical, because a small child rarely complains that one eye is not seeing properly.

Retinal abnormalities, cataracts, glaucoma, retinoblastoma [eye tumor], eye muscle imbalances, and systemic disease with ocular manifestations may all be identified by careful examination. An examination would include

an external inspection of the eyes, tests for visual acuity on an age-appropriate basis, tests for ocular muscle movement and eye muscle imbalances and ophthalmoscopic examination
