Diabetic Eye Disease

The root cause of this condition is diabetes mellitus, more commonly known as diabetes. The blood vessels in the retina are severely affected due to the increase of blood sugar levels in the body, which leads to eye problems including vision impairment or permanent blindness.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease or condition that affects the optic nerves. As time passes, there is slow deterioration; this can cause permanent damage to the optic nerves if proper treatment of glaucoma is not administered. As the condition worsens it leads to hazy vision, which eventually causes blindness.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye condition which affects the macula – a tiny portion of your retina located at the back of your eye. This degenerative eye disease is the leading cause of legal blindness and vision loss in Americans above the age of 65. The macula is primarily responsible for sharp, central vision that helps you read, watch television or drive. Age-related macular degeneration breaks down the macula that in turn results in blurry and distorted central vision while peripheral vision might still be intact. This disease alone does not cause total blindness though it is still the major cause of irreversible vision loss in senior patients.

Corneal Erosions/Trauma

Corneal erosion affects the cornea, the clear dome covering the front of the eye. When the outermost layer, the epithelium, does not stay attached correctly to the corneal tissue below it, this can cause a condition called corneal erosion. If the problem occurs repeatedly, it is called recurrent corneal erosion.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a vision disorder that occurs when the normally round cornea (the front part of the eye) becomes thin and irregular (cone) shaped. This abnormal shape prevents the light entering the eye from being focused correctly on the retina and causes distortion of vision.

Dry Eye Syndrome

It is also known as dry eyes, but the official name for dry eye syndrome is keratoconjunctivitis sicca, which results due to decrease in moisture and lubrication in the eyes. As a result of which, tear production is greatly reduced or the tears tend to dry up too fast. It is characterized with the eyes becoming swollen and experiencing dryness or redness in and around the eye area.

Retinal Detachments

The middle of our eye is filled with a clear gel called vitreous that is attached to the retina. As we get older, the vitreous may shrink and pull on the retina. Usually, the vitreous moves away from the retina without causing problems. But sometimes the vitreous pulls hard enough to tear the retina in one or more places.
