Eye Health Information

 

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a vision condition which stems from a gradual thickening and loss of flexibility of the crystalline lens and makes it difficult to focus on close objects.

 

Cataract

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that leads to a decrease in vision. 

 

Macular Degeneration

The macula is made up of millions of light-sensing cells that provide sharp, central vision and also the most sensitive part of the retina. Macular degeneration is deterioration of the macula. When the macula is damaged, the center of view may appear blurry, distorted, or dark.

 

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a common eye condition where the optic nerve becomes damaged. It is usually caused by the extra fluid building up in the front part of the eye, which increases the eye pressure. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness for people over 60 years old, but it can often be prevented with early treatment.
