Conditions


Choose your condition from the following:

Hypermetropia (Long sightedness)

With Hypermetropia the eye is shorter than normal, so that light rays focus behind the retina. The image on the retina is blurred. When light rays enter the normal eye, they are focused at a single point on the retina, located at the back of the eye. The cornea (the clear portion at the front of the eye) and the lens inside the eye bend or ‘refract’ the light rays so taht they focus at the correct point.

Myopia (Short-sightedness)

With Myopia the eye is longer than normal, so that light rays focus in front of the retina and distant objects appear blurred.
When light rays enter the normal eye, they are focused at a single point on the retina, located at the back of the eye. The cornea (the clear portion at the front of the eye) and the lens inside the eye bend or ‘refract’ the light rays so that they focus at the correct point.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism can occur in people who already have myopia or hypermetropia.When light rays enter the normal eye, they are focused at a single point on the retina, located at the back of the eye. The cornea (the clear portion at the front of the eye) and the lens inside the eye bend or ‘refract’ the light rays so that they focus at the correct point.

Presbyopia

Difficulty reading with age. When light rays enter the normal eye, they are focused at a single point on the retina, located at the back of the eye. The cornea (the clear portion at the front of the eye) and the lens inside the eye bend or ‘refract’ the light rays so that they focus at the correct point.

Cataracts

A cataract is when the naturally clear lens inside the eye becomes cloudy. It is made up of protein much like the white of an egg. Cataract extraction involves removing this cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear artificial lens called an “IOL” resulting in improved  vision.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a condition affecting about 1 in 2000 people where the collagen fibres in the cornea are relatively loosely arranged and not tightly bound to one another as it would be in a healthy cornea. The result is that the fibres can slip over one another and cause a steepening (cone) of the lower half of the cornea. This leads to a reduction in vision, an increase in astigmatism and the introduction of aberrations that reduce the quality of vision.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged in a characteristic pattern. This can permanently damage vision in the affected eye(s) and lead to blindness if left untreated. It is normally associated with increased fluid pressure in the eye (aqueous humour).
