Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), cataract, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, dry eye and low vision are age-related eye diseases. Dr. Richard Simon, Ophthalmologist with Baptist Outpatient Services, says cataract is going to happen to everybody: “You will never escape that, if you’re over 59 you’re going to have some degree of cataract. It means that the lens is getting darker.”

He also explains glaucoma means high pressure in the eye. “That is never normal, it’s progressive and it doesn’t produce symptoms until very late. And it can lead to blindness eventually,” he points out.
