The 20th century has brought us great benefits, yet the hectic pace of modern life imposes a great burden on our eyes. Increasingly in these days of high stress, television, and computers we find that our vision is impaired.
Eye pain or redness and changes in our vision may be signs of a problem that requires medical attention. Sudden problems such as new vision changes, pain in the eye, or increased drainage are often more serious and need to be evaluated by a doctor. Pollution, stress can also cause eye strain. These conditions lead to problem in our eyes like eye allergic, inflammation of the eye, development of refraction errors and so on. People with diabetes are more prone to eye problems which can cause severe vision loss or even blindness in extreme cases.

Most vision problems are noticed first by the parents.
