(HealthDay News) -- Concerned about gradual loss of vision? The American Academy of Family Physicians says here are potential explanations:

  • Macular degeneration, in which the eye's macula changes and affects your ability to see clearly.
  • Glaucoma, a condition caused by increased pressure from fluid in the eye.
  • A cataract, which occurs when the lens of the eye becomes clouded.
  • Diabetic retinopathy, which occurs among diabetics when blood vessels in the eye are damaged due to high blood sugar levels.
  • Infection or injury to the eye.
