Eye Health Conditions
Glaucoma is an eye condition where the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain, becomes damaged. It is usually caused by fluid building up in the front part of the eye increasing pressure inside the eye.
Diabetic retinopathy, also known as diabetic eye disease, is a medical condition in which damage occurs to the blood vessels at the back of the eye causing bleeding that can lead to blindness.
Otherwise known as AMD, age related macular degeneration is a degenerative condition affecting the central part of the retina (the macula) and resulting in distortion or loss of central vision.
Dry eye is a disease of the tears and eye surface that can have a profound effect on a person’s comfort, vision and quality of life. It is associated with either tear deficiency or excessive tear evaporation.
Flashers & Floaters
Floaters such as small dark spots, squiggly lines or cobwebs and flashes of light are usually harmless if you have had them for a long time, aren’t worsening or if your vision isn’t affected.
Digital Eye Strain
Digital Eye Strain describes a group of eye and vision-related problems that result from prolonged screen use. Many individuals experience eye discomfort when viewing digital screens for extended periods.
