COMMON EYE PROBLEMS

Dry Eye

Dry eye is a very common condition that occurs when people don’t have either enough tears or the correct composition of tears, to lubricate the eyes and keep them comfortable.


 

Conditions of the retina


A leading cause of blindness in older people is a condition called age-related macular degeneration. The macula is located in the center of the retina (back of the eye) and is responsible for the sharp, central vision needed to see straight ahead. 


 

Conjunctivitis


Conjunctivitis refers to any inflammatory condition of the membrane that lines the eyelids and covers the exposed surface of the eye. It is the most common cause of “pink eye.” Conjunctivitis is commonly caused by bacteria and viruses


 

Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis


Giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC) is an inflammatory condition in which large bumps (known as papillae) form on the inside of the eyelids.


 

Recurrent Corneal Erosion
 

Also known as basement membrane disease. Patients with this condition awaken with pain in one or both eyes. Our office treats this condition with bandage contact lenses. Patients experience relief from long term discomfort with this type of treatment.


 

Corneal Abrasion


A corneal abrasion can occur from a mechanical insult to the eye. Occassionally a contact lens wearer will experience a corneal abrasion. These can be quite painful. 
Eyelashes are misdirected in a posterior direction, then they may rub against the globe, particularly the cornea, causing ocular surface damage.


 

Color Blindness


Take our online Color Blindness Test to determine if you may have color blindness. If you think you may have color blindness, come in for a full exam and ask about corrective lenses for color blindness.


 

Keratoconus


Keratoconus is a condition that results from an irregularly shaped cornea. With keratoconus, the normally round cornea becomes thin and more cone-shaped, which prevents light from focusing correctly on the retina
