Helpline: Vision - Treatment Support
Vision treatment refers to therapies that are developed to improve your visual abilities and comfort by overcoming visual diseases. Vision problems are common among aged people, most people over 60 years of age. Many types of diseases can affect your eye. Early diagnosis and treatment of the condition can help improve your vision or slow the disease’s progression. The common eye problems include:
- Lazy eye
- Convergence insufficiency
- Graves disease
- Macular degeneration
Severe disease can cause double vision or complete vision loss.
Depending on what type of vision problem you have, your eye doctor may prescribe medications, eye drops, eye exercises, and/or surgical treatment. You should see your doctor to get more information about the treatment options. However, it is a good idea to ask people who have had similar experiences or have cared for someone with vision problems. You can meet many such people at ExtendaTouch’s online support group for vision. Our members can give you more information about the treatments and share their first-hand experience with different vision treatments.
Support for Eye Care and Treatment
Caring for your eyes and overall health is the best way to prevent eye diseases. Many eye problems happen due to underlying health conditions. For example, cardiovascular problems can trigger eye conditions by affecting your eyes’ blood vessels. If you have any health problems, do not disregard it. Make sure to get treatment before it affects your eyes.
You can find many people on ExtendaTouch who have experienced eye problems. Many of our fellow caregivers have cared for people with eye diseases. They can tell you what you can do for proper eye care. Our friendly members can also provide you emotional support, no matter if you are an eye patient or a caregiver for someone with vision problems. Connect with us to start getting help.
