Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a condition which affects the optic nerve, the nerve that takes the information from your eye to your brain. It is commonly but not always caused by an increased pressure.
 

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is a degenerative eye condition caused by changes to the back of the eye, specifically the macular region of the retina which is responsible for clear central vision.

Diabetes increases the risk of a range of eye diseases, but the main cause of blindness associated with diabetes is diabetic retinopathy (DR). DR damages blood vessels inside the retina at the back of the eye.

Strabismus also known as squint or eye turn is a misalignment of one or both eyes, the turn can be there constantly or come and go intermittently.
 

Binocular vision disorders

Binocular vision disorders involve a variety of conditions affecting the way the eyes work together to perform tasks such as fine movements and focusing (accommodation).

Myopia

Myopia or short sightedness is when the eyeball is too long for the focusing power of the eye resulting in blurry vision, particularly in the distance.
 

Hyperopia

Hyperopia or long sightedness is when the eyeball is too short for the focusing power of the eye resulting in blurry vision, eye strain and headaches particularly up close when reading.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is due to the irregular shape eye, this causes blurry vision and eye strain at both distance and near. Astigmatism can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is blurry vision associated with age. As the eye ages the lens gradually thickens and loses flexibility and you have difficulty focusing on objects that are up close.

Children’s Vision
