As an eye clinic with Ophthalmologists we care many eye-conditions professionally and with extreme care
A cataract is the
clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. The clouding prevents light entering the
eye from being focused on the retina. The lens clouds naturally as we age, resulting in
a gradual decrease of eyesight. Cataracts usually progress slowly to cause visual loss
and are potentially blinding if left untreated. The condition usually affects both eyes,
but one is usually affected earlier than the other. In the United States of America,
age-related lens changes have been reported in 42% of people between the ages of 52 to
64, 60% of people between 65 to 74, and 91% of people between the ages of 75 to
Symptoms Of Cataracts:
Blurred or hazy vision, A “film” or “fog” over the eye, Decreased contrast (newspaper or book ink fading), Decreased brightness of colors, Glare from sunlight, Halos around lights (like oncoming headlights), Light sensitivity, Frequent changes in eyeglass prescription, Cannot follow the golf ball after hitting it.
Stages Of Diabetic
Mild nonproliferative retinopathy – microaneurysms develop in the tiny blood vessels of the retina
Moderate nonproliferative retinopathy – blood vessels to the retina become blocked
Severe nonproliferative retinopathy – the blood supply to the retina is blocked
Proliferative retinopathy – New blood vessels, to replace the blocked blood vessels, grow alongside the retina
Symptoms of diabetic retinopathy may include the following:
Vision that may be blurry or doubled, Flashing lightsm, Blank spots, Dark floaters or spots in the vision, Pain or pressure in either or both eyes, Problems with peripheral vision, Severe vision loss or blindness.
Patients with diabetes
are at a higher risk for developing eye conditions as a complication their disease. Over
40 percent of patients diagnosed with diabetes develop some form of eye disease as a
result of their disease. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease
and the primary cause of blindness in the United States.
Diabetes can damage blood vessels in the eye, causing blood or fluid to leak from the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. It can also cause new blood vessels to grow on the surface of the retina, leading to significant damage to vision and the overall quality of life.
Diabetic eye disease is a
combination of various eye conditions that develop as a result of diabetes. These
