June is an awareness month for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
According to the National Center for PTSD, there are currently about 8 million people in the United States alone with PTSD. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder occurs after a person has experienced some sort of severe traumatic event in life. Despite what you may think, this is not a rare occurrence, with around 7 or 8 people out of 100 experiencing it during their lifetime.
The Mayo Clinic groups symptoms into four types: intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, and changes in physical and emotional reactions. These symptoms can vary over time or vary from person to person.
There are four distinct types of cataracts, Age-related, Congenital, Secondary, and Traumatic.
Cataracts cause blurry, cloudy vision and may occur in adults over the age of 60, called age-related cataracts.
Infection, injury, or poor development may cause an unborn child to develop cataracts in the mother’s uterus, and these are congenital cataracts. These may also form in childhood from the same reasoning.
A person with another medical condition, like diabetes, can cause secondary cataracts. Persons taking corticosteroids, or diuretic medications can also develop secondary cataracts. Other ways are being around toxins, ultraviolet light, and radiation.
There is no way to actually prevent cataracts. , The treatments would be prescription glasses or contacts, followed by prescription medication or both, and finally, if these treatments don’t work, surgery.
Watch this short video where a doctor explains cataracts and their treatment.
