Age related macular degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration rarely causes blindness, but can cause permanent loss of your central vision making it difficult to see near and far. Age-related macular degeneration is a breakdown of the eye's macula, which is located in the retina.
Your eye works like a camera, with a transparent lens located behind your iris (the colored part of the eye) to help focus light onto your retina. With age or trauma, the lens can change, becoming less transparent. When the cornea is abnormal, misshaped, damaged or no longer clear, transplanting a donor cornea is a well-known and time-tested treatment.
When the cornea is abnormal, misshaped, damaged or no longer clear, transplanting a donor cornea is a well-known and time-tested treatment. Corneal donation is the most common form of organ donation and has saved the sight of thousands of people world-wide.
Diabetic retinopathy can lead to severe vision loss and in extreme cases, blindness. Diabetic retinopathy damages the blood vessels in the retina. It typically affects both eyes and occurs in people with Type I and Type II diabetes.
Dry eye/tear solutions
Tears lubricate and protect your eyes and help maintain clear vision. When too few or poor quality tears are produced, dry eye occurs, causing a gritty, uncomfortable feeling, with blurriness and a feeling of something lodged in the eye.
Flashes of light and floaters
Floaters are small specks that move in and out of your field of vision. They are typically more noticeable when looking at a plain background, such as a white wall. Floaters are tiny clumps of cells or materials that are inside the clear, gel-like fluid that fills the inside of your eye. When this gel pulls on the retina, a person may see flashing lights or lightning streaks - these are flashes.
Glaucoma damages the optic nerve, which is responsible for sending the images from the eye to the brain. Glaucoma occurs when the aqueous humor, or a clear fluid in the eye, does not flow out of the eye properly. The build up of fluid pressure causes glaucoma.
Iridotomy is the formation of a small hole in the iris (the colored portion of your eye) to allow excess fluid to drain behind the iris, where it can be more easily absorbed.
Low vision rehabilitation
If you have Low Vision then you have a vision impairment that is not correctable by surgery, laser, or other medical intervention. With many eye conditions your vision impairment is permanent. Low Vision Rehabilitation is the process of maximizing your vision using optical and non-optical aids to improve your independence and quality of life in spite of vision loss.
Repair of non-functioning or blocked tear duct
A blocked tear duct results in your tears not being able to drain normally. This often leaves you with a watery and irritated eye. Blocked tear ducts are the result of a partial or complete obstruction in the tear drainage system.

Removal of cyst/pimple on or in eyelid
Cysts, pimples, or sties are caused by bacteria that get into the oil glands in the eyelids.
Removal of growth on conjunctiva
These growths are thought to be caused by UV light exposure, such as sunlight. The growth typically occurs from the nasal side of the sclera, or the white part of your eye.
Retinal detachment occurs when the retina becomes separated from the underlying supporting tissues. This is a very serious condition, and can cause severe or even permanent vision loss. When the retina becomes detached, it is unable to properly function.
Strabismus surgery is very common and has a number of causes. Strabismus relates to a misalignment of the eyes, or cross eye. Treatment should be started as soon as possible to ensure the best results.
Trabeculoplasty surgery for glaucoma
Trabeculoplasty is a procedure in which an opening or openings are made in the trabecular network to drain excess fluid. Using a kind of trapdoor formed in the wall of the eyeball, the fluid is collected in a small "bleb" or space formed just under the surface, and then diffuses out to be absorbed.
A tiny tube is threaded from the inside of the anterior chamber of the eye (the space between the iris, or the colored portion of your eye, and your cornea, or the clear dome-shaped structure forming the front of your eye), through the eyeball to a small plate or reservoir which collects the excess fluid and allows it to disperse harmlessly around the outside of the eye.
Upper eyelid surgery
Upper Eyelid Surgery is done to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, or to fix any defects, deformities, or disfigurations. The procedure is done to restore correct function to the eyelids. Eyelid problems can interfere with your vision.
