Eye Conditions Overview

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related Macular Degeneration is a condition which affects the central part of the retina, called the macula. It leads to worsening of vision. There are early forms of AMD which may not show symptoms but can be noted during routine eye checks. However, there are more advanced forms which can cause vision loss and need further investigation, like a VisionSafe Eye Check.

Blepharitis

Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids. It can make the eyelids red and eyelashes crusty, and make the eyes feel irritated or itchy.

Cataracts

Cataract is a condition where the lens ages to the point where it becomes frosty and opaque obscuring vision with a yellowish haze.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a condition seen in people with diabetes. It leads to changes in the retina including blockage of small blood vessels and bleeding. Severe forms can be dangerous as the condition can lead to vision loss or blindness.

Dry Eye

Dry eyes have less than normal moisture on the eye surface, either caused by a lack of tears or by poor tear quality. The incidence of dry eye increases with age due to the natural ageing process, but can also have other causes such as environmental  conditions or medications.

Flashes and Floaters

Flashes and Floaters is a condition where flashes of lights or floating dots appear within the vision as you move your eye. Flashes and Floaters are quite commonly seen in people with normal eyes but can sometimes be associated with retinal disease.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an older age disease of the optic nerve and comes gradually over time. Glaucoma can lead to the permanent loss of vision and should, therefore, be treated as early as possible.

Retinal Vein Occlusion

Retinal vein occlusion is a blockage of the small veins that carry blood away from the retina and can lead to sudden, painless blurred or loss of vision.
