Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, is a condition where vision in one of the eyes is reduced because the eye and the brain are not working together properly.
Anatomy of the Eye
The human eye is the organ of sight closely related to the brain and is best compared to a camera. The function of the eye is to convert light into an electro-chemical signal, which is then transmitted to the brain through the optic nerve. It is in the brain that this signal is converted into “vision.”
Astigmatism is characterized by unequal curvatures of the cornea. Astigmatism results in blurry vision and can occur in both nearsighted and farsighted persons, or it can be found alone.
Contact Lenses: Related Infections
Factors that contribute to an infection can include the use of extended-wear lenses, reduced tear exchange under the lens, environmental factors, or poor hygiene.
Diabetic Eye Care
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you may be at risk of losing your vision since your body does not utilize sugar properly and, when the sugar levels rise, damage to the retinal blood vessels may occur.
Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a common vision condition in which you can see distant objects more clearly than near objects.
Glaucoma is a term that references several conditions that damage the optic nerve caused by excess pressure.
Keratoconus is an eye condition in which the shape of the cornea becomes distorted.
The term “macular degeneration” includes many different eye diseases, all of which affect central, or detail vision. Age-related macular degeneration is the most common of these disorders, mainly affecting people over the age of 60.
Nearsightedness (myopia) is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you more clearly, than objects far away.
Presbyopia is an age-related condition that causes blurred near vision. It typically starts at around age 40 and affects everyone, even those who’ve never had vision problems before.
Retinal Diagnostic Testing
Fluorescein and indocyanine green (ICG) angiography are diagnostic tests which use special cameras to photograph the structures in the back of the eye. These tests are very useful for finding leakage or damage to the blood vessels which nourish the retina (light-sensitive tissue).
Strabismus (also called crossed eyes, deviation, heterotropia, squint, tropia) is a condition where both of your eyes do not look toward the same object together.
Tears and Detachments
Retinal detachment affects approximately 1 in 10,000 people each year. If left untreated, most retinal detachments will lead to loss of vision.
