The eyes are always vulnerable; they can experience eye problems at any instant in time.
Ideally, eye complications can affect a person at any age (in childhood, teenage or adulthood). Most of the time the eyes are exposed to objects or environments full of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. In such scenarios, the eye can possibly get infected by bacteria, fungi or viruses. In most extreme cases, the eyes can get infected/ or damaged from external objects, such as glass pieces in a road accidents. In other occasions, one may experience problems in the eyes through inheritance of some attributes from the parents.
So, eye problems are conditions that need to be conserved seriously.
In that regard, one is always advised to seek medical assistance whenever he or she experiences any unusual sensation from the eyes. Large medical institutions like the Sydney Hospital and Sydney Eye Hospital do encourage people to consult ophthalmologist whenever they experience the following: diminishing of some parts of the visual perimeter; sensation of specks and light flashes; decreased viewing capacity; persistent pain in the eyes; unusual headache nausea; partial blindness; double vision; poor colour sensitivity; red and irritating eyes; itchy sensation in the eyes; puffy eyes; burning eyes; unusual eye discharge; and so on.
When eye problems are not taken care off soon enough, they result into the various eye diseases. For instance, clouding of an eye lens, also known as cataract is a condition that is experienced by people who are 60 years and above. If the condition is not attended to in time it will lead to vision loss. Glaucoma is another eye disease that poses some potential threats to one’s eye sight. This particular disease exhibits most of the mentioned symptoms above. It exists in three major forms (open angle glaucoma; angle closure glaucoma; and secondary glaucoma).
Most of the eye symptoms do correspond to some very potential eye problems, here are some of them: blurred vision corresponds to hyperopia, presbyopia, and diabetic retinopathy; eye bump corresponds to pinguecula, and papilloma; eye burning corresponds to trauma, computer vision syndrome, conjunctivitis, contact lens problems, dry eye syndrome and so on.
