See an Ophthalmologist Today If You’ve Been Experiencing These 5 Symptoms

Date Published

When it comes to eye care, the specialty doctor who can help you is what we call an ophthalmologist. If you’re still unaware of what an ophthalmologist does, this article will help enlighten you and tell you when you will be needing their help.

What kind of doctors are ophthalmologists? Ophthalmologists are specialized medical doctors for eye and vision care. They are trained to diagnose, treat, and perform surgery for all kinds of eye diseases. For example, ophthalmologists can treat conditions such as glaucoma, a condition that damages your eye’s optic nerve, cataracts, the growth of cloudy areas in the lens of the eyes, and iritis, which is inflammation of the iris, among others. They can also perform plastic surgery, like raising droopy eyelids for better vision. Ophthalmologists possess training and knowledge to treat even the most complex eye conditions.

How do you know if you need to see an ophthalmologist? Here are some symptoms to look out for. If you’re experiencing any one of these, it’s time to see an ophthalmologist.

  1. Eye Pressure

This usually feels very much like a normal headache. But as time passes, you may feel some pressure at the back of your eyes, which can be an early sign of glaucoma.

  1. Seeing Halos

When you look at a light bulb, do you see a halo around it? If you are, this could be an early sign of cataracts.

  1. Tunnel Vision

As the name describes, this will feel similar to driving in a dark tunnel—you see a far light at the end, with darkness all around you. This may be an effect of several potential eye illnesses.

  1. Blurry Vision

Blurry vision is a common experience, especially when we tire out our eyes. You may feel this when you watch too much television or when you’ve been working on your computer for long hours. This means you need to rest. However, if you have blurry vision often and even if you’ve been able to rest, it might mean something else.

  1. Recurring Headaches

Just like blurry vision, recurring headaches can be an effect of tiredness, not only because of your eyes, but of the rest of the body, too. If getting rest doesn’t solve this, consider getting your eyes checked.

Are experiencing any one of these? If you are, you know what to do. See your doctor as soon as possible.
