An inflammation of the eyelids causing crusty, red eyelid margins leading to irritated and itchy eyes and the formation of dandruff-like scales on the eyelashes and crusting around the eyes on awakening.
Presbyopia is a very common vision condition that begins in the early to mid-40s where the lens inside the eye loses its flexibility over the years making it difficult to focus on close objects while reading.
Nearsightedness, or myopia, is a very common vision condition in which the patient is able to see the close objects clearly but objects farther away appear blurred.
Flashes and Floaters
Small cloudy particles of various shapes and sizes swimming in the jelly fluid inside the eye called the vitreous
Cataract is a cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye that distorts the light entering the eye so it can no longer focus properly causing blurred vision.
Lazy Eye (Amblyopia)
A condition that develops before the age of 6 where the central vision in one eye does not develop properly due to any eye health problem causing a blurry vision in that eye
Astigmatism is a very common vision condition that causes blurred vision due to improper focusing of the light on the retina, the light sensitive surface at the back of the eye.
Dry eye Syndrome
Dry Eye Syndrome is the most common of all eye disorders affecting approximately 20% of the population.
The second leading cause of blindness in America. It is usually associated with a buildup of internal eye pressure, which can damage the eye's optic nerve that transmits visual information to the brain leading to a loss in side or peripheral vision, and if not treated could then lead to blindness.
LASIK is a type of refractive surgery for correcting myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism as an alternative to wearing corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses for many patients.
Farsightedness, or hyperopia, is a vision condition in which distant objects appear to be clear but objects up-close seem blurry due to improper focusing of the light entering the eye.
The leading cause of blindness in Americans age 65 or older due to the degeneration of the macula, which is the central part of the retina responsible for the clear, sharp central vision needed to read or drive.
It is a progressive damage to the retina of people with diabetes due to weakening or swelling of the tiny blood vessels resulting in blood leakage, the growth of new vessels and other changes. It is a serious sight-threatening complication of diabetes that may lead to blindness if left untreated.
Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia are common vision conditions that cause blurred vision and can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, Lasik surgery, or lens implants to replace the lenses in the eyes.
The child’s ability to see clearly is very critical and has a great influence on school performance since most of the learning activities depend on visual abilities and visual processing.
