The function of the retina is to receive light that is focused by the lens of the eye and passes through it and then converting the light into signals which are sent to the brain which then tells us what we can see. Unsurprisingly, its function makes the retina one of the most important parts of our eye and essential for our vision. If it becomes damaged or affected by the disease, it could stop working properly causing temporary or even permanent vision loss. Fortunately, it is possible to preserve the health of your retina and maintain your vision for longer thanks to MacuHealth.
Always remember that your eyes can experience both short-term and long-term eye damage due to excessive sun exposure. Based on a study in the Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology, wearing sunglasses is only one way to protect your eyes from UV rays.
Macular degeneration causes the deterioration of the paper-thin macula. The most common type of macular degeneration is age-related. The disease can progress very quickly or slowly. Macular degeneration can affect one or both of your eyes. There are two types of macular degeneration, wet and dry. A patient can exhibit either one or both types of the disease.
As we know, overexposure to blue light can have some disruptive and even harmful effects. This is because almost all visible blue light passes through the cornea and lens of the eye, reaching the retina. This light may potentially affect vision and could prematurely age the eyes.
