Five Stealthy Conditions That Can
Rob You Of Your Sight
We have all probably experienced changes in our vision as we get older. Most people need reading glasses as we age, even after decades of near perfect near-vision. But if we feel generally comfortable with our ability to see, we may overlook the need for regular eye exams to detect the silent robbers of sight.
Our Tuesday Talk will describe and explore conditions that evolve without causing symptoms – sometimes until it is too late to reverse vision loss. The eye is one of the most complex organs of the body, and what goes on “behind the scenes” is most important to know. Happily, ophthalmology is one of the fields in which medicine has made some of the most significant advances. In our Talk, we will find out about the conditions that doctors are looking for and about the newest approaches to repairing and treating the “silent” conditions of the eye. There will be plenty of time for questions.
Matej Polomsky, MD – is a board certified ophthalmologist practicing general ophthalmology, and cataract and laser surgery at Wilmington Eye Associates.
