Amblyopia occurs when one eye fails to develop normal vision during childhood. It typically occurs due to factors like strabismus or significant refractive errors.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye occurs due to insufficient tear production or poor tear quality. It typically results from various factors, including age, hormonal changes, environmental conditions, certain medications, or underlying health conditions, and causes discomfort, redness, itching, and a gritty sensation.
Eye Disease Management
Your eye doctor plays a crucial role in managing and treating various eye diseases, like glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Proper management and early detection are the best ways to preserve vision.
Eye Focusing Problems
Eye focusing problems refer to difficulties maintaining clear vision, particularly when shifting focus between near and distant objects. These problems can arise due to issues with the eye's lens or problems with eye coordination, eye strain, headaches, and blurred vision.
Blurry vision occurs when objects appear hazy or out of focus. While there are many reasons you may experience blurry vision, such as refractive errors, nearsightedness, or farsightedness. Other potential causes include astigmatism or presbyopia.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, makes far objects appear blurred, but close objects remain clear. It causes light to focus in the front of the retina, rather than directly. It occurs if the eyeball is distorted or the retina is too curved.
Conjunctivitis causes inflammation and discomfort in the eye. It results from bacterial or viral infections, allergies, or irritants. Symptoms include redness, itching, excessive tearing, and discharge from the eye.
Farsightedness refers to a condition where nearby objects appear blurry, while distant objects remain relatively clear, as it causes light to focus behind the retina rather than on it.
Keratoconus is a progressive eye disorder characterized by thinning and bulging of the cornea. This irregular shape of the cornea leads to distorted vision, making it difficult to focus properly. The exact cause is unknown, but genetic and environmental factors may play a role.
