Health Information by category Eyes

It is quite common to develop problems with your sight as you age. The most common problems are cataracts, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. We will explain what each of these conditions are, how they are diagnosed and treated and what the outlook is for each, in our dedicated doctor-authored leaflets. All types of eye problems are dealt with such as the common ones, like conjunctivitis (perhaps you wonder “Do I need prescribed medicine for my conjunctivitis?”), stye (“What is the best way to treat a stye?”) and the more rare like toxoplasmosis and Sjögren's syndrome.
