Understanding How Your Eyes Work

Submitted by Karen Saland on Sun 08/05/2018 - 01:19

Your eye works in a similar way as a camera. When you look at an object, light reflected from the object enters the eyes through the pupil and is focused through the optical components within the eye. The front of the eye is made of the cornea, iris, pupil and lens, and they focus the…

Macular Hole Symptoms

Submitted by Karen Saland on Wed 07/25/2018 - 02:57

A macular hole is a small hole in the central part of the retina which can lead to distortion and blurring of central vision. The eye contains a jelly-like substance called the vitreous and with age, the vitreous contracts and pulls away from the retinal surface. Usually, this separation occurs without noticeable negative effect. The patient…

Submitted by Karen Saland on Sun 07/15/2018 - 02:54

A retinal detachment occurs when the retina (a nerve layer that lines the back wall of the eye) separates from the back of the eye. It is usually due to a tear in the retina which can happen because of an inherent weakness, trauma or the vitreous gel pulling a hole in the retina. Retinal…

Glaucoma Care

Submitted by Karen Saland on Sun 07/08/2018 - 02:50

What is Glaucoma? Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes vision loss in one or both eyes. Glaucoma is caused by fluid buildup behind the eye. This buildup puts pressure on your optic nerve and damages it. If damage to the optic nerve from high eye pressure continues, glaucoma will cause permanent loss of vision….

Understanding Refractive Errors

Submitted by Karen Saland on Sun 07/01/2018 - 02:47

To see clearly, the cornea and the lens of the eye must bend (refract) light rays so they focus on the retina. The retina, a layer of light-sensing cells that line the back of the eye, converts the light rays into impulses that are sent to the brain where they are recognized as images. If…

Macular degeneration is a chronic eye disease that causes blurred vision or a blind spot in your visual field due to damage to the macula of the eye. There are two types of macular degeneration classified as wet and dry. Dry macular degeneration is the most common and least severe type. Wet macular degeneration is…

Many conditions cause photopsia — flashes of light in the eye. Flashes of light can be harmless, or an indicator of a serious eye problem that needs immediate treatment. It is important to be evaluated by an eye doctor for an accurate diagnosis of the cause of light flashes in your eyes. Seek immediate medical…

Corrective Lenses

Submitted by Karen Saland on Sun 06/10/2018 - 12:47

A corrective lens is a lens worn in front of or on the eye, mainly used to treat refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. Corrective lenses are designed to help your eyes to focus light properly onto your retina so that you can see clearly. This is done by bending the light…
