The Sun And Your Eyes: Know The Risks Of UV Ray Exposure & How To Avoid It

Now that summer is here in the United States, you may have stocked up on sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun's harsh UV rays this sunny season. Like most people today, you likely take steps to protect your skin from the sun to prevent skin cancer and premature aging. However, you may not realize that the sun's UV rays can also harm your eyes, which is why it is very important to shield your family's eyes from these rays. 

Read on to learn more about how the sun's UV rays can affect your eye health.

 

If you suffer symptoms such as painful headaches and vision problems—the cause of which may be elevated intracranial pressure—your doctor may refer you to an ophthalmologist for a comprehensive eye and vision exam. Intracranial hypertension (IH), also known as pseudotumor cerebri and benign intracranial hypertension, occurs when the pressure of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) inside the skull elevates above normal levels.

Although IH is a rare disorder, if left untreated, the condition can lead to permanent vision loss or blindness. Therefore, it's important to recognize the signs and then see your doctor for diagnosis and proper treatment before the problem becomes more serious.

Vitreomacular adhesion (VMA)—also known as sticky eye—is an eye condition in which adhesions pull on the macula, potentially leading to vision problems. Since the condition, which is common among older individuals, can affect the central vision you need to perform everyday tasks, it's important to gain fuller knowledge of the condition, its diagnosis, and the treatment options available.

When you're expecting, you know your body is going to change. Many women anticipate stretch marks, joint pain, and increased weight, but less well-known changes can catch them off guard. In fact, your eyes can experience unexpected changes when you're pregnant.

Here are some tips for adjusting to vision changes and protecting your eyes during pregnancy. 

A sudden loss of vision in one eye is a frightening occurrence, and quickly finding the cause and intervening with an appropriate treatment is vital. One such cause, a retinal artery occlusion, also known as an eye stroke, is due to a loss of blood flow to the affected eye's retina. It may surprise you that strokes can affect more than just the brain, and eye strokes can lead to serious long-term vision problems if left untreated or ignored. Below is more information about this problem and what you should know about its diagnosis and treatment.
