Eye Health

Vision Screenings

A vision screening is a simple eye test that is used to identify visual impairments and if a comprehensive eye exam is needed to treat eye disorders.

Research

Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses

Glasses and contact lenses are the most common forms of treatment for refractive errors, such as myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.

Research

Refractive Error and Surgery

Refractive errors are disorders that occur when the shape of the eye prevents light from focusing properly on the retina, resulting in poor vision.

Research

Eye Infections

Eye infections occur when microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses enter the eye or eyelid, resulting in mild to severe irritation.

Research

Eye Allergies

An eye allergy or allergic conjunctivitis is an adverse reaction that occurs when the eye is bothered by an irritating substance or allergen.

Research

Dry Eye and Blepharitis

Dry eye syndrome is often mistaken for blepharitis, as their symptoms are very similar and include redness, itchiness, inflammation, and discharge.

Research

Chalazion

A chalazion is a small lump or swelling that develops within the eyelid as the result of a blocked oil gland and is often confused with a stye.

Research

Anisocoria

Anisocoria is an ocular condition that causes the pupils of the eyes to differ in size, resulting in blurred vision, headaches, nausea, and ptosis.

Research

Nystagmus

Nystagmus is repetitive, involuntary movement of the eyes from side to side, up and down, or circular motions, resulting in reduced vision.

Research

Systemic Disease

A systemic disease affects many organs or the entire body, resulting in various symptoms that often negatively impact the eyes and overall vision.

Research

Thyroid Eye Disease

Thyroid eye disease or Grave's eye disease is a condition that attacks the thyroid gland, resulting in bulging of the eyes, pain, and blurred vision.

Research

About Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the eye's clear natural lens, which causes foggy vision and makes it difficult for light to pass through the eye.

Research

Cataract Lens Options

Cataract lens options describe the types of intraocular lenses or artificial lenses that can replace the eye's natural lens to remove cataracts.

Research

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery or lens replacement surgery is used to remove a clouded lens of the eye to replace it with an artificial lens for restored vision.

Research

About Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the optic nerve because of built-up eye pressure, leading to blindness in patients over the age of 60.

Research

Glaucoma Treatments

Glaucoma treatments are surgical and nonsurgical therapies that are designed to control glaucoma, prevent further damage, and safeguard one's vision.

Research

Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction

Nasolacrimal duct obstruction is a blocked tear duct that prevents the eyes from draining tears properly, leading to discharge, swelling, and pain.

Research

Retinopathy of Prematurity

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is abnormal blood vessel development on the retina in premature babies, resulting in partial or complete blindness.

Research

Infantile Hemangioma

Infantile hemangioma is a red birthmark made of blood vessels that develop in babies, which can affect their eyesight when on or near the eye.

Research

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is an autoimmune disease that damages the tissue around the joints, resulting in chronic inflammation and pain.

Research

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy describes the nonsurgical methods used to improve convergence insufficient (CI), which impacts near vision and eye muscle coordination.

Research

Vision and Down Syndrome

Down syndrome is a genetic disorder that often impacts vision development and eye health, resulting in refractive errors, eye misalignment, and more.

Research

Exotropia

Exotropia is a form of strabismus or misalignment of the eyes that causes one or both eyes to drift outward away from the nose, producing poor vision.

Research

Esotropia

Esotropia is a type of misalignment of the eyes that causes an inward deviation of one or both eyes, resulting in loss of depth perception and vision.

Research

Double Vision

Double vision (diplopia) affects one or both eyes, causing the brain to see two images of one object at the same time, leading to other vision issues.

Research

Special Forms of Strabismus

Special forms of strabismus include Duane syndrome and Brown syndrome, which are rare ocular misalignments that impact patients of all ages.

Research

Strabismus Surgery

Strabismus surgery relaxes or tightens eye muscles that cause abnormal alignment of the eyes to achieve a natural appearance and improved vision.

Research

Types of Amblyopia

Amblyopia (lazy eye) is a condition that causes poor vision in one or both eyes due to abnormal visual development, refractive errors, or cataracts.

Research

Amblyopia Treatment

Amblyopia treatment describes different therapies that are used to improve amblyopia (lazy eye) in adults, teens, and children of all ages.

Research

Diabetic Eye Exams

Diabetic eye exams are tests that ophthalmologists perform to identify diabetic retinopathy and other vision concerns that may develop with diabetes.

Research

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy affects the blood vessels in the retina, arising from complications of diabetes, which causes vision loss and blindness.

Research

Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration is an eye disease that affects the retina, resulting in vision loss in patients who are 50 years of age or older.

Research

Flashes and Floaters

Flashes and floaters develop when the vitreous detaches from the retina, resulting in specks, cobwebs, and strands of light in the field of vision.

Research

Retina Surgery

Retina surgery repairs a retinal detachment or retinal tear to prevent further damage to the eye, central vision, and vitreous fluid supply.

Research

Ptosis

Ptosis, or pathologic droopy eyelid, is a disorder that affects the upper eyelids, resulting in drooping or low-hanging skin that blocks vision.

Research

Ectropion and Entropion Repair

Ectropion and entropion are eyelid disorders that cause the edge of the eyelid to fold inward or outward, resulting in irritation and eye issues.

Research

BOTOX®

BOTOX is a wrinkle relaxer or neurotoxin used to treat forehead wrinkles, Crow's feet, frown lines, and bunny lines in adults who are 18 and older.

Research

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like products that enhance volume, reduce wrinkles, soften facial lines, and improve the appearance of scars.
