Seeing Double?

Seeing Double?

“The eyes are the window to the soul.”
I’m sure most of you are familiar with this saying. Indeed, our eyes play a vital role in our everyday living. Without our sight, it would be a million times harder to perform our daily tasks. This is why we need to take good care of our eyes to prevent any eyesight deterioration.

One of the most common eye problems faced  – Double Vision.

What is double vision?
The simultaneous perception of two images, usually overlapping, of a single scene or object.

How to prevent it?
-Prevent the development of cataracts – Keep your eyes healthy and avoid cataracts by wearing sunglasses, refraining from smoking, and eating a healthy diet.

-Soothe dry eyes – Keep your eyes well lubricated. Try to minimise prolonged computer use as it can cause eye strain and dry eyes.

How to treat it?
Surgery may be the answer if weak eye muscles are the cause, while other issues, such as diabetes and myasthenia can be treated with medications. Wearing an eye patch or prism glasses, which help align the two images into one, can help.

Keep your eyes healthy!!! :)
