Common Eye Conditions

Amblyopia The loss or lack of development of clear vision in just one eye. It is not due to eye health problems and eyeglasses or contact lenses can’t fully correct the reduced vision caused by lazy eye.
Astigmatism A vision condition that causes blurred vision due either to the irregular shape of the cornea, the clear front cover of the eye, or sometimes the curvature of the lens inside the eye.
Cataracts A cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye.
Conjunctivitis An inflammation or infection of the conjunctiva, the thin transparent layer of tissue that lines the inner surface of the eyelid and covers the white part of the eye.
Diabetic Retinopathy A condition occurring in persons with diabetes, which causes progressive damage to the retina, the light sensitive lining at the back of the eye.
Dry Eyes  A condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye.
 Floaters The shadowy images that are seen moving in your field of vision caused by particles floating in the fluid that fills the inside of the eye.
 Glaucoma A group of disorders leading to progressive damage to the optic nerve, and is characterized by loss of nerve tissue resulting in loss of vision.
 Hyperopia A vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close objects do not come into proper focus.
 Macular Degeneration An eye disease affecting the macula, the center of the light sensitive retina at the back of the eye, causing loss of central vision.
 Myopia A vision condition in which you can see close objects clearly, but objects farther away are blurred.
 Pinguecula An abnormal growth of tissue on the conjunctiva, the clear membrane that covers the white of the eye.
Presbyopia  An age-related vision condition in which there is a gradual loss of the eye’s ability to focus on near objects.
  Pterygium An abnormal growth of tissue on the conjuctiva, the clear membrane that covers the white of the eye, and the adjacent cornea, the clear front surface of the eye.
