In the age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is divided into dry and wet AMD. If these diseases detected early, most of the cases can be successfully influenced. This is an important advantage in terms of quality of life and independence into old age.
Sooner or later a cataract develops in every eye. The lens of the eye becomes more and more clouded over the course of a lifetime: Contrasts become weaker; all in all vision becomes more clouded. Usually an operation can be carried out safely, during which an artificial lens is implanted.
With glaucoma, precautionary measures play a central role, because the illness keeps progressing slowly. Due to an increased intraocular pressure, the optic nerve is gradually pinched off. This disease, too, can be treated with medication.
