Back to Glaucoma. There are several different treatments for glaucoma, including eye drops, laser treatment and surgery. The best treatment for you will depend on your circumstances. Treatment can't reverse any loss of vision that has already occurred, but it can help stop your vision getting any worse.

The lens of the eye is normally clear. It acts like the lens on a camera, focusing light as it passes to the back of the eye. Until a person is around age 45, the shape of the lens is able to change. This allows the lens to focus on an object, whether it is close or far away.

Eye problems and disorders are common in the elderly population. Laser surgeries and other treatments exist to address some of these aging-related conditions. The key is to detect them early. Regular eye exams will help detect vision problems before they become serious. Here is a list of common age-related eye problems that can affect people at various stages in life but often affect the elderly.
Macular degeneration — also called age-related macular degeneration AMD or ARMD — is a vision change that can gradually create blurry vision over time. AMD affects the macula, the small central area of the retina that maintains our sharpest vision. The health of the macula determines our ability to read, recognize faces, drive, watch television, use a digital device, and perform any other detailed visual task. A patient with AMD gradually loses central vision but maintains peripheral or side vision.
