What causes glaucoma?

Older African Americans are most likely to be afflicted with glaucoma, although it can affect anyone, typically over 40. Your orbitals is like a water tank; new fluid is pushed into the orbital while older fluid is removed. When the ducts that are responsible for removal of fluid is clogged, blocked, or overall damaged the fluid cannot be removed and the orbital fills up with fluid causing pain and damaging the optic nerve. This added pressure results in blindness and cannot be reversed. There are several risk factors that make people more susceptible to glaucoma.

  • Increased orbital pressure
  • Nearsightedness (myopia)
  • Farsightedness (Hyperopia)
  • Growing older
  • Diabetes
  • Family history
  • Injury to the orbitals
  • Ethnic background

Glaucoma can also affect children, but it is much more common in older adults.

Can exposure to sunlight cause cataracts?

Yes. It is now believed that excess exposure to UV light can cause cataracts. The proteins found in your lenses are structures so perfectly that they transmit light so you can properly see. Exposure to sunlight causes oxidative stress on these proteins and they begin to clump together, giving you the cloudiness, you see in the lens when a person has cataracts. This clouding makes the light to scatter rather than transmit.

What are bifocals and how do they work?

Bifocals are corrective lenses that have correction for distance at the top of the lens and the ability to help you read towards the bottom of the lens. When they were first invented there was a distinct line of demarcation in between the two lens types which worked for sight but did not look very fashionable. Now they have a smooth undetectable transition but still offer the same advantage with the two lenses. There are even bifocal contacts that help correct multiple sight issues in a comfortable and fashionable way. They fit directly on the pupil and left undetectable.

What causes “floaters” in my field of vision?<< /h3>

Floaters happen for a variety of reasons and present as a black or refracted curvy line which floats across your field of vision. It is caused by the buildup of proteins in the liquid of the lens. They look like black or grey dots, cobwebs, or strings, and drift away as fast as they drift in to focus. Most are caused by the natural aging process. If you notice a sudden change in the number and frequency of these floaters you should contact a medical professional immediately.


  • Age-related changes – as we ae the vitreous (liquid) that fills our orbitals begins to shrink and sag, clumps and turns stringy the debris interferes with the light passing through the pupil and it casts shadows on the retina
  • Inflammation in the back of the orbitals – posterior uveitis is caused by inflammation within the layers towards the back of the orbital, it releases inflammatory agents into the vitreous. It is caused by infection or other systemic inflammatory diseases.
  • Surgeries and medications – Medications injected into the vitreous can cause air bubbles to form and shadows to be seen until the bubbles are absorbed.
  • Bleeding – bleeding into the center liquid of the orbital which can be caused by hypertension, diabetes, injury, and clogged blood vessels.
  • Torn Retina – Retina tears can happen when the shrinking and sagging of the vitreous begin to pull at the retina if left untreated fluid can build up behind the retina and cause it to detach completely, this can cause permeant loss of sight.
