Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related Macular Degeneration occurs when central vision deteriorates, making reading, close work and recognising faces more difficult. The most common forms of the condition are Dry and Wet AMD. Dry AMD results in a gradual loss of central vision, and Wet AMD leads to sudden and significant changes in vision.
Glaucoma is caused by a number of different eye diseases, which in most cases, produce increased pressure within the eye. A backup of fluid in the eye causes this elevated pressure. Over time, the pressure causes damage to the optic nerve. Through early detection, diagnosis and treatment, you and your doctor can help to preserve your vision.
A pterygium is a fleshy tissue that grows in a triangular shape over the cornea (the transparent part or front window of the eyeball). It may grow large enough to interfere with vision.
A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens, which is the part of the eye responsible for focusing light, and producing a clear and sharp image. Cataracts are the leading cause of visual loss in adults 55 and older.
Diabetes can cause the tiny blood vessels in the eye to swell and leak blood, or fluid around the retina. As they heal, scar tissue is formed, leading to damage of the retina. The leakage of fluid can also lead to macular oedema, causing blurred vision. Diabetic Retinopathy can lead to blindness. Early diagnosis of DR is the best way to prevent loss of vision.
Posterior Capsule Opacification
Posterior capsule opacification occurs in around 20% of people following cataract surgery. A clouding of the capsule behind the artificial lens occurs, which can take months to years to develop after surgery. PCO does require laser treatment to remove the clouding, in order to restore vision.
