You have visual fatigue, red eyes and burning
Eye fatigue also causes burning and red eyes. This is because we put too much pressure on the eye muscles which causes this feeling of visual fatigue.
If you are experiencing at least one of these symptoms, the chances of you needing to wear glasses are high.
Keep in mind that only a professional optician or eye doctor can tell you for sure whether or not you need glasses. So first of all, make sure you find out what inconveniences you are presenting. From our website you can book a non-binding appointment with an optician partner closest to you, so that you can better evaluate your eyesight.
The next step is to identify which type of lenses you should wear.
There are a variety of solutions: from monofocal lenses to see better near or far, to simple reading glasses, from bifocals, to progressive glasses, our specialty! Progressive glasses are ideal for seeing well at all distances – it’s like having several glasses in one.
Who is the ophthalmologist and what he does
Ophthalmology (or ophthalmology) is the science that studies diseases related to the visual apparatus. There are many professional figures involved in the diagnosis and treatment of vision: optician, optometrist, orthoptist and ophthalmologist (or ophthalmologist or ophthalmologist).
- Only ophthalmologists are doctors and therefore can prescribe treatments and perform operations. For this reason, in this article we will focus on this professional figure.
- Vision problems affect about 80% of the Italian population, but most of those who are aware of having them do not use the right means of correction and most of those with eye problems do not know. On the other hand, 40% of the population never carries out a vision check.
Yet it is a fundamental sense: more than 80% of the information that comes to us from the surrounding environment passes through the eyes. It is precisely from the lack of visits and precautions that sometimes irreversible damage is caused and the eye diseases typical of aging are aggravated.
After the age of 50, in fact, ocular health tends to progressively deteriorate, resulting in partially preventable disorders.
The situation has worsened further in recent years due to the large amount of time we spend looking at nearby objects. In addition to watching TV and reading, we use a lot of computers, smartphones and tablets: all activities that strain our eyes, evolved to look mainly into the distance.
In addition, the eyes are stressed by the ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun and by possible trauma resulting from sports and driving.
The main eye diseases that involve gradual visual impairment up to loss of vision could be cured or blocked in their course thanks to early diagnosis and the use of targeted treatments. However, many people are diagnosed with degenerative eye diseases too late, when the damage is irreversible.
It is therefore important to follow all three stages of prevention, in which the ophthalmologist accompanies us:
- On a healthy person, to prevent eye diseases that cause low vision from occurring (with the adoption of a healthy lifestyle for the person and environmental interventions to protect the community);
- On a sick person who does not know he is (thanks to regular eye checks);
- On a sick person who knows he is sick with appropriate treatment and rehabilitation.
