Advanced Treatment for Many Vision Disorders

From amblyopia (lazy eye) to uveitis (inflammation of the middle eye), there are dozens of vision disorders. The most common ones include:

  • Astigmatism (blurred vision caused by misshapen cornea or lens)
  • Blepharitis/meibomian gland dysfunction (inflammation of the eyelids)
  • Cataract (cloudy areas in the eye)
  • Chalazion (lump or blockage of an oil gland in the eyelid)
  • Computer vision syndrome (from prolonged computer use)
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Diabetic retinopathy (damage to the retina from diabetes)
  • Dry eye (insufficient tears to lubricate the eye)
  • Glaucoma (damage to the optic nerve)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Keratitis (inflammation or swelling of the cornea)
  • Keratoconus (progressive thinning & bulging of the cornea)
  • Macular degeneration (central vision loss)
  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Nystagmus (uncontrolled repetitive eye movements)
  • Pinguecula (an abnormal growth on the conjunctiva)
  • Presbyopia (age-related loss of focus on near objects)
  • Pterygium (an abnormal growth on the conjunctiva & cornea)
  • Ptosis (drooping upper eyelid)
  • Strabismus (eyes do not look in the same direction at the same time)
  • Stye (also called a hordeolum, an oil gland infection)
