As people age, they have a higher risk of developing serious vision problems and eye conditions; even younger adults can develop painful eye conditions such as dry eyes, pink eye and eyestrain. More than 170 million Americans wear eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct vision problems, and that number is likely to increase. Fortunately, many of these conditions are preventable, treatable and even reversible.
In Mayo Clinic Guide to Better Vision, Sophie J. Bakri, M.D., walks readers through the diagnoses and treatment of common eye issues, as well as preventive measures for protecting the eyes. She also shares the best techniques for correcting common vision problems and provides tools for those currently living with low vision.
Presented through clear, conversational explanations paired with detailed illustrations, this book is a practical resource for making the most of your vision.
