Major Eye Conditions

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Amblyopia is a vision development problem that typically affects babies and young children, and may lead to permanent vision loss if left untreated.

 

Astigmatism

Blurring of vision may occur due to astigmatism. This condition is usually caused by an irregular cornea.

 

Blepharitis

This condition involves inflammation of the eyelids. Symptoms include chronic eye irritation, watery eyes, foreign body sensation, and sensitivity to light.

 

Blurry Vision

From eye strain and fatigue to glaucoma, several causes may be responsible for blurry vision.

 

Cataracts

This condition can be corrected with surgery, and is currently the most common non-elective surgery in the US. Laser assisted cataract surgery may also be performed, which is less invasive.

 

CMV Retinitis

Nearly four in five adults have been exposed to the cytomegalovirus (CMV), but it usually affects people with weak immune systems.

 

Cornea Transplant

Diseases such as keratoconus and eye injuries may be addressed with a cornea transplant, using healthy tissue from an eye donor.

 

Detached Retina

If the patient experiences flashes of light and floating spots, it is a warning sign of detached retina. Treatment should be sought immediately.

 

Diabetic Retinopathy

Chronic diabetes can cause damage to the eye’s retina. A committed and proven eye surgeon may offer treatment for diabetic retinopathy and macular edema.

 

Double Vision (Diplopia)

Double vision may occur due to various conditions, such as cataracts and stroke.

 

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye condition may be treated with eye drops, nutritional supplements, and tear duct plugs.

 

Eye Allergies

Eye allergies may commonly cause red, itchy, tearing or swollen eyes. Anti-allergic medication and avoiding allergens may be advised the treatment provider.

 

Eye Herpes

Ocular herpes is a recurrent viral infection, which may eventually cause serious loss of vision.

 

Eye Injury

Various kinds of eye injuries may occur due to accidents. The injuries may range from corneal scratches to penetrating eye wounds.

 

Eye Occlusions (Eye Strokes)

When a blockage or clot interrupts blood supply to the vital eye structures, it may cause a sudden vision loss or eye stroke.

 

Fuchs’ Corneal Dystrophy

This disease can cause vision loss and clouding of the cornea due to degeneration of the corneal endothelium and corneal edema.

 

Glaucoma

Glaucoma may cause damage to the optic nerve and reduce the field of vision. Eye drops and surgery may be the treatment options for most patients.

 

Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Farsighted people can have poor near vision or blurred vision at all distances.

 

Myopia (Nearsightedness)

Nearsighted people can see fine up close, but distant objects are a blur.

 

Photophobia (Light Sensitivity)

Eye sensitivity to light may occur to various underlying eye conditions.

 

Ptosis (Drooping Eyelid)

Drooping eyelids can be corrected with ptosis repair surgery, which tightens the muscle that supports the upper eyelid.
