Eye Conditions and Diseases

Uveitis

Uveitis Uveitis is inflammation of the eye’s uvea, an area that consists of the iris, the ciliary body and the choroid. The iris is the colored part of the eye that surrounds the pupil. The ciliary body is located behind the iris and produces the fluid that fills the anterior part of the eye. The… Read More


Stye

Stye A stye (or hordeolum) develops when an eyelid gland at the base of an eyelash becomes infected. Resembling a pimple on the eyelid, a stye can grow on the inside or outside of the lid. Styes are not harmful to vision, and they can occur at any age. Signs and Symptoms of Styes A… Read More


Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a rare, inherited eye disease in which the light-sensitive retina slowly and progressively degenerates. This causes progressive peripheral vision loss, night blindness, central vision loss and, in some cases, blindness. RP affects approximately one out of every 4,000 Americans. Signs and Symptoms of Retinitis Pigmentosa The first symptoms of… Read More


Retinal Detachment

Retinal Detachment A retinal detachment is a serious and sight-threatening event, occurring when the retina – the light-sensitive inner lining of the back of the eye – becomes separated from its underlying supportive tissue. The retina cannot function when it detaches, and unless it is reattached soon, permanent vision loss may result. Signs and Symptoms… Read More


Ptosis

Ptosis Ptosis (pronounced “toe-sis”) refers to the drooping of an eyelid. It affects only the upper eyelid of one or both eyes. The droop may be barely noticeable, or the lid can descend over the entire pupil. Ptosis can occur in both children and adults, but happens most often due to aging. Ptosis Signs and Symptoms The… Read More


Presbyopia

Presbyopia Sometime after age 40, people begin to experience blurred near vision when performing tasks such as reading, sewing or working at a computer. This change is called presbyopia. There’s no getting around it — presbyopia happens to everyone at some point in life, even those who have never had a vision problem before. As of… Read More


Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)

Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis) Technically, pink eye is the acute, contagious form of conjunctivitis – inflammation of the clear mucous membrane that lines the inner surface of the eyelids and overlies the white front surface of the eye, or sclera. Bacterial or viral infection causes the contagious form of conjunctivitis. However, the term “pink eye” is… Read More


Ocular Hypertension

Ocular Hypertension Ocular hypertension means the pressure in your eye, or your intraocular pressure (IOP), is higher than normal. Elevated IOP is also associated with glaucoma, which is a more serious condition that causes vision loss and optic nerve damage. By itself, however, ocular hypertension doesn’t damage your vision or eyes. Studies suggest that 2%… Read More


Myopia

Myopia Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a very common vision problem. It’s estimated that up to one-third of Americans are nearsighted. Nearsighted people have difficulty reading road signs and seeing distant objects clearly, but can see well for up-close tasks such as reading or sewing. Signs and Symptoms of Myopia Nearsighted people often have headaches or eyestrain,… Read More


Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration Macular degeneration (also called AMD, ARMD, or age-related macular degeneration) is an age-related condition in which the most sensitive part of the retina, called the macula, starts to break down and lose its ability to create clear visual images. The macula is responsible for central vision – the part of our sight we… Read More
