Glaucoma and cataracts are eye diseases that usually occur later in life, but are they connected by something else beyond that?


Vision is one of the most important feelings of a person, so it is important to try to keep him healthy. In this article, we consider the principles of charging for the eyes in conditions such as myopia, farsightedness and strabismus. As well as preventive exercises for the eyes when working at a computer for a long time.

You need to bury eye drops correctly. It is important to adhere to the instructions so that the medicine works, and the disease does not worsen. Following simple rules, burying drugs in the eyes becomes effective and comfortable.


When eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataract occur simultaneously, specific treatment is required, which, as a prevention or relief of symptoms, involves the use of special drops that should not interact. Our medical experts name the top 5 eye drops for glaucoma and cataracts.



There are a number of different types of glaucoma, the most common of which is called "open-angle." It develops slowly. The reason is the fluid that accumulates in the chamber in front of the eye. Under normal conditions, this liquid drains, since a new liquid is produced instead. In the case of glaucoma, this fluid cannot flow out when the smallest drains are blocked, as the new fluid continues to be produced, the pressure in the eye increases and the optic nerve is eventually damaged.


The inner (sensitive) sheath of the eye - the retina - is a very thin highly differentiated tissue that is responsible for light perception. It has two parts: peripheral and central. The central part is the macula, it is very small, only 5 mm, but it is extremely important! Macula is responsible for objective vision and the ability to distinguish colors. The peripheral part occupies the main area of the retina and provides lateral and twilight vision. This sheath is fed by large arteries, which, dividing, form a layered capillary network, as well as by the vascular sheath of the eye, which is located directly below the retina. Impaired blood circulation in these small vessels is detrimental to the cells of the light-receiving envelope, because their nutrition is disturbed. This is especially important for the central zone, because there are the most active processes. Therefore, a patient having vascular diseases is at an increased risk of vision loss.

The dosage of each agent is calculated in such a way that part of the agent enters the blood, part - on the mucous eye, and the rest will simply spill out, which is inevitable and pharmacists take into account this fact. Therefore, it is so important to observe the schedule that is prescribed by the doctor or in the instructions for the remedy. After all, if you use the drops incorrectly, there is a risk of infecting a healthy eye.

In addition, eye drops are an environment ideal for the appearance of microbes - if you do not observe sterility, you can not only not cure the disease, but also further harm yourself. And finally - various kinds of microorganisms are constantly present on the eyelashes, which means that the eyelashes should not contact the tip of the bottle with drops.
