Hereditary factors can influence various eye diseases, but genetics don't seal one's fate. Glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, macular degeneration, and color blindness can be familial. Regular check-ups, a healthy lifestyle, and genetic testing may help manage the risks. Surgery and treatments exist for conditions like glaucoma and cataracts, while other diseases, such as macular degeneration, can be treated to slow progression.

A dilated eye exam is the best thing you can do for your eye health! Since many eye diseases have no symptoms or warning signs, you could have a problem and not know it. Even if you think your eyes are healthy, getting a dilated eye exam is the only way to know for sure. Dilation is part of a thorough eye exam where your doctor uses special eye drops to keep your pupil open.
