Why is Eye-Screening Important?




Regular eye-screening as you age is highly recommended for early diagnosis and treatment of age-related eye diseases. Age-related Eye Diseases that can be detected by eye-screening include: Glaucoma, Cataracts, Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy.

With early diagnosis and treatment, the worst permanent effects of such age-related eye diseases can be avoided.

01

Cataracts

A cataract is a condition in which the lens of your eye turns cloudy, preventing sufficient light from entering your eye, therefore reducing vision. Most cataracts develop slowly and you may not notice it in the earlier stages of the condition. However, your vision will be affected as the clouding progresses. Although cataracts do not cause irritation or pain, it is the most common cause of blindness in the world. Fortunately, it is treatable with safe, effective surgery.

Cataract formation is associated with ageing and is common in the elderly.

02

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of conditions that eventually leads to diminished vision. It is one of the leading causes of blindness in the world. It accounts for 40% of blindness in Singapore.

Glaucoma is usually caused by fluid pressure in the eyeball that is too high for the optic nerve to tolerate. The optic nerve carries visual impulses from your eye to the brain. This pressure build-up occurs because of an imbalance between the production and drainage of fluid within the eyeball.

Glaucoma is not curable, but blindness is preventable if glaucoma is diagnosed and treated early enough. The risk of glaucoma occurrence increases when you are over 60 years old. While there are usually no warning signs, regular eye tests will detect the onset of the disease.

03

Diabetic Retinopathy

The retina is the layer that lines the inside of the back of the eye. The function of the retina is very much like the film in a camera. It contains millions of light-sensing cells that detect the images we see. Diabetes can cause damage to the retina, causing loss of vision due to swelling of the retina, insufficient blood supply to the retina cells, bleeding inside the eye or scarring and detachment of the retina.


Patients usually have no symptoms initially, i.e. vision is perfectly normal, in the early stages of diabetic retinopathy. Thus, it is important to have your eyes checked annually if you are diabetic. Once vision is affected, the diabetic retinopathy is usually severe. This includes blurred vision and dark clouds in your field of vision due to bleeding inside the eye. Good vision can be maintained if retinopathy is detected and treated early before permanent damage has occurred.

04

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of blindness in those over 50 years old. Smokers have a two to four times higher risk of developing AMD compared to non-smokers. It is a chronic irreversible medical condition that results in loss of vision in the centre of the visual field (the macula) because of damage to the retina.

The condition can make it difficult to read or recognise faces, although enough peripheral vision remains to allow you to continue with other daily activities. However, activities like driving and reading will be affected.

There are no proven preventive medications for AMD. The best way to prevent vision loss is to get a prompt eye examination and diagnosis by your eye doctor. Early diagnosis improves the success of treatment.
