Astigmatism
 
Astigmatism
Astigmatism is a vision condition in which light entering the eye is unable to be brought to a single focus, resulting in vision being blurred at all distances. Astigmatism is not a disease, but rather, a vision condition that is quite common. It often occurs in conjunction with other refractive errors like nearsightedness and farsightedness.
 
 
Blepharitis
 
Blepharitis
Blepharitis is a chronic inflammation of the eyelids which can cause irritation, itching and crusting of the eyelashes and a red eye. This condition is often recurrent and can develop at any time during our lifetime.
 
 
Cataracts
 
Cataracts
When the normally clear lens within the eye becomes cloudy or opaque, it is called a cataract. Cataracts vary from extremely small areas of cloudiness to large opaque areas that cause a noticeable loss of vision.
 
 
Conjunctivitis
 
Conjunctivitis
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, a thin, transparent layer covering the surface of the inner eyelid and a portion of the front of the eye. This condition appears in many forms and can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or allergic reactions.
 
 
Diabetes
 
Diabetes and the Eyes
Diabetes can affect many parts of the eye. Diabetes can cause changes in the refractive error. It can result in cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, and decreased corneal sensitivity. Visual symptoms of diabetes include blurring of vision, occasional double vision, night vision problems and flashes and floaters within the eyes. Sometimes early signs of diabetes are detected in comprehensive optometric examinations. The most serious eye problems associated with diabetes is diabetic retinopathy resulting in blood leakage in the retina.
 
 
 
Dry Eye
The tears your eyes normally produce are necessary for overall eye health and clear vision. Dry eye occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears. The most common signs and symptoms include stinging, itchy, scratchy, burning and sometimes "watering" of the eyes.
 
 
Farsightedness
 
Farsightedness
Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close ones are not brought into proper focus.
 
 
 
Floaters
Floaters are small, semi-transparent or cloudy specks or particles within the vitreous fluid inside the eye that become noticeable when they move within the line of sight.
 
 
Glaucoma
 
Glaucoma
Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the internal fluid pressure of the eye rises to a point that the optic nerve is damaged. The pressure that builds up is usually due to inadequate drainage of fluid normally produced in your eyes. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the U.S.
 
 
MacularDegeneration
 
Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration is an eye disease that occurs when there are changes to the small portion of the retina that is located on the inside back layer of the eye. It reduces central vision and makes seeing objects and details straight ahead difficult or impossible. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss among people over age 50.
 
 
Nearsightedness
 
Nearsightedness
Nearsightedness (myopia) is a vision condition in which near objects are generally seen clearly but distant objects are blurred.
 
 
 
Presbyopia
Presbyopia is a vision condition usually occurring over age 40 in which the crystalline lens of the eye loses its flexibility resulting in difficulty focusing on close objects.
 
 
 
Retinitis Pigmentosa
RP is a hereditary progressive disease which has its onset in childhood and causes defective night vision and eventually blindness.
