Blurred vision, distorted vision, dark or blank spots in central vision

age-related-macular-degeneration-eye

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.

Blurred vision, floaters, distortion in vision

diabetic-retinopathy-eye

Diabetic retinopathy

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.

Clouding, Distortion, Scarring

cataract-surgery-eye

Cataract surgery

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.

corneal-transplant-eye

Corneal transplant

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.

Treatment of cross-eye, repair of non-functioning or blocked tear duct

Double vision, misaligned eye(s), one eye moves normally while the other points in a different direction

strabismus-surgery-eye

Strabismus surgery

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.

Strabismus surgery

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.

Droopy upper eyelid, puffy, impaired vision caused by drooping eyelid

Eyelid surgery

upper-eyelid-surgery-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.

Dry Eye

dry-eye-tear-solutions-eye

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.

Excessive tearing, recurrent eye inflammation, blurred vision, discharge from the eye, swelling, eye infections

non-functioning-blocked-tear-duct-eye

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.

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.

iridotomy

Iridotomy

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.

trabeculoplasty-surgery-for-glaucoma-eye

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.

tube-drainage-eye

Tube drainage

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.

No early symptoms, but early detection and treatment are important

glaucoma

Glaucoma

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.

Redness, foreign body sensation, tearing

removal-of-growth-on-conjunctiva-eye

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.

Scratchy sensation as if there is something in your eye, sensitivity to light, tearing of your eye, tenderness

removal-of-cyst-pimple-on-or-in-eyelid-eye

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.

Seeing specks or clouds in vision, flashes of light or lightning streaks

flashes-of-light-and-floaters-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.

Spots, floaters, flashers of light, poorer vision

retinal-detachment-eye

Retinal detachment

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.
