Women on average live longer than men and are able to have children, which is great news, but at the same time, these things put them at risk for eye problems. They are more likely to suffer from eye-related diseases and conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma, dry eyes and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This is why it’s so important for women to visit their eye doctor, and regularly.
Cataracts cloud your eyes and are the leading cause of blindness, often happening after the age of 40. You can have cataracts surgically removed, with this procedure the eye lens is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens implant. The surgery can improve sight by up to 95%.
