Eye Problems, Possible Causes and Advice By AGE Grouping.
Even though a particular type of eye problem may affect more than
one age group, it will be discussed in some detail under that age
group for which the particular problem is most commonly encountered.
The particular eye conditions and their possible causes are
discussed in the main body of the text. Recommendations are
usually given as a whole for the particular age group at the end
of the discussion.
The reader is referred at times to another age grouping for a more
detailed consideration of certain conditions. The descriptive terms
that are used in the discussions are usually explained whenever
they are mentioned. Where necessary, the reader may refer to the
following links for a glossary
of terms and for a description of the anatomy
of the eye.
