Type of Eyes Diseases
Strabismus is an ocular misalignment condition that occurs when the visual axes between the two eyes are not parallel to one another, resulting in improper binocular vision.
Amblyopia, often known as "lazy eye", is a developmental disorder of the visual system that affects one or both eyes, and develops in early childhood. It results in reduced vision that cannot be corrected using Spectacles or contact lenses.
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that can damage the nerves in your eye, leading to vision loss. It often results from abnormally high pressure within the eyeball, which can cause gradual and permanent damage to the optic nerve.
Cataracts refer to the formation of cloudy patches on the lens of the eye which obstruct the passage of light into the retina and cause decreased vision. Cataract is a common condition in adults over 65, however it can also develop due to trauma, radiation treatment or certain medications.
Refractive errors are optical imperfections that cause the light entering the eye to be improperly bent, resulting in vision problems. These errors are lenses which are too flat (myopia), too steep (hyperopia), or have an irregular curvature that also affects proper bending of light.
Diabetic Retinopathy is an eye problem caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina. In patients with diabetes, high levels of blood glucose can damage the tiny vessels that form part of the microscopic network that provides nutrition to part of the eye known as the "retina."
