Maintaining good eyesight is vital for nearly every aspect of daily life, yet an estimated 93 million adults in the United States face a high risk of serious vision loss. The Mayo Clinic Guide to Better Vision offers a comprehensive resource for understanding common vision problems, preventing age-related eye disorders, and promoting lifelong eye health.

As we age, our eyes become more susceptible to conditions like age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts, while younger adults may experience painful eye issues such as dry eyes, styes, and eye strain. Over 170 million Americans currently wear corrective eyewear, and this number is likely to increase. Fortunately, many of these conditions are preventable, treatable, and even reversible.

In the Mayo Clinic Guide to Better Vision, Dr. Sophie Bakri, M.D. provides an in-depth exploration of diagnoses and treatment options for these common eye problems, as well as strategies for preventing eye diseases, retinal disorders, and permanent vision loss. The book also offers tips for correcting common vision problems and assists individuals currently living with low vision.

Using a conversational style and featuring detailed illustrations, photographs, and tables, this practical guide is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to maintain healthy eyes and sharp vision throughout life.
