Degenerasi Makula Terkait Usia : Gambaran Umum dan Faktor Risiko


Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD): Overview and Risk Factors

BY: PHYSICIANS COMMITTEE FOR RESPONSIBLE MEDICINE

Age-related macular degeneration is a degenerative disease of the macula, the central part of the retina. It results in loss of central vision, which is necessary for most daily activities, and can cause legal blindness. This disease is the most common cause of poor vision among elderly persons

There are two forms of macular degeneration: The “dry” form is marked by changes in the macula without bleeding or leakage of fluid. The “wet” form includes leakage and/or bleeding from new blood vessel growth beneath the retina.

Macular degeneration is thought to be due to destruction of the fatty acids in the rods and cones of the eyes. Thus, antioxidant nutrients have long been thought to be protective (see Nutritional Considerations). Baca lebih lanjut

Katarak: Gambaran Umum dan Faktor Risiko


Cataracts: Overview and Risk Factors

BY: PHYSICIANS COMMITTEE FOR RESPONSIBLE MEDICINE

Cataracts are extremely common. They affect an estimated 15 million people and are responsible for nearly half of all cases of blindness worldwide.

A cataract occurs when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy or opaque. This happens gradually, as proteins in the lens become oxidized. Doctors do not know exactly why this occurs, but they believe that a combination of environmental factors (such as toxins and sunlight exposure) and genetic factors are involved.

Cataracts can occur in specific areas or throughout the lens. The process usually occurs very slowly over the course of years or decades, and it usually affects both eyes.

Cataracts are not painful. The most common symptoms are loss of vision, blurred vision, or double vision. In general, long–distance vision is lost before near vision. Some patients say that they see a halo effect around lights. Others note excessive glare during night driving and in bright light, especially sunlight. Baca lebih lanjut
