Common Eye Diseases

Glaucoma:Glaucoma is increased pressure of the fluid inside the eye, which can cause optic nerve damage. Glaucoma is a common cause of blindness.

Cataract:Cataract is a clouding of the lens, causing blurry or color-tinted vision. People with cataracts often report “haloes” surrounding objects that they are looking at, particularly at night. It is most common in older people, and cataracts can be removed by surgery that replaces the lens with an artificial lens.

Amblyopia:Commonly referred to a "lazy eye," amblyopia occurs when one eye has worse vision than the other, and the brain begins to favor the better eye.

Retinal Detachment or Tear:A tear in or detachment of the retina causes blurry vision or partial loss of vision.

Dry Eye Syndrome:Dry eye is a lack of proper tears, usually due to a problem with the tear ducts or eyelids, or a problem with certain medications. This condition can cause pain and blurry vision.
