Eye Disease

Eye diseases are a common health concern among Australian men. Some of the most prevalent eye diseases in this population include age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and dry eye syndrome [1]. These diseases can cause serious vision loss or even blindness if not detected and treated early.  Research has shown that early detection and prompt treatment of eye diseases can significantly improve outcomes for patients [2]. To reduce the risk of developing eye diseases, it is recommended that men have regular eye exams and maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise [3].
