Eye exams can help identify problems with the eye and often treatments are available. Choose one of the following eye diseases or another one that is of personal interest to you:
- Diabetic retinopathy.
- Age-related macular degeneration.
After you have identified the eye disease you want to research, complete the following:
- Describe the underlying cause and symptoms.
- Identify and explain possible treatments and how eye exams, like those you did in the lab, would help an optometrist identify the condition you researched.
- State whether you think children should undergo routine eye exams. Explain why or why not.
Make sure that you include an APA citation of all resources used.
