The eye

The eye, the most important human sensory organ, is a "ball" of 2 cm in diameter. Along with the brain, it provides for visual perception. Defective vision, e.g. near-sightedness, is common starting in early childhood and can negatively impact everyday living. With advancing age, more eye diseases such as cataract, etc. emerge. The eye is also called the window to the human body, which can help in early detection or follow-up for general diseases, e.g. diabetes.

Defective vision

Defective vision is not an eye disease; it is rather a defective refractive power of the eye, e.g. with near- or far-sightedness. The incidence of light rays is not represented on the retina as a point, resulting in a blurry image. Defective vision is corrected successfully and also permanently with glasses, contact lenses and now, increasingly with refractive surgery.

Eye diseases

With advancing age, the probability of eye diseases continues to rise. Between the age of 52 and 64, 50% of the population has some type of cataract; sometimes without noticing any impaired vision at all. Between the age of 65 and 75, it is already way beyond 90%. After the age of 75, half of those afflicted notice impaired vision or have already undergone surgery. Another 20% are afflicted by an advanced stage of age-related macular degeneration.
