Clouding or loss of transparency of the lens of the eye, a type of degenerative eye disease.
Small, hard mass (granuloma) on the eyelid.
Disease of the retina due to long-term effects of diabetes.
Fluid accumulation in the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye causing increased pressure and damage to the retina and optic nerve with loss of peripheral vision (world gets smaller and smaller).
Laser surgery that creates perforations in the trabeculum, to drain built up aqueous humor and relieve pressure.
Measurement of tension and pressure within the eye; glaucoma test.
hordeolum (stye or sty)
Inflammation of an oil-secreting gland in the eyelid; stye.
Deterioration of the macula of the retina and producing a loss of central vision.
Repetitive, rhythmic movements of one or both eyes.
Separation of the two layers of the retina from each other.
Bright flashes of light
black spots or filmy shapes
Procedure to suture a band of silicone on the sclera directly over a detached portion of the retina.
A gas bubble is injected into the vitreous cavity to put pressure on the area of retinal tear until the retina is reattached.
Abnormal deviation of the pupils; esotropia or exotropia are examples.
One eye turns inward; cross-eyed.
One eye turns outward; wall-eyed.
Upward deviation of one eye.
Downward deviation of one eye.
Partial loss of vision or lazy eye.
Dacryocystitis is an inflammation of the tear sac (lacrimal sac) at the inner corner of the eye.
Outward sagging and eversion of the eyelid, leading to improper lacrimation and corneal drying and ulceration.
Inversion of the eyelid, causing the lashes to rub against the eye; corneal abrasion may result.
Infection of a sebaceous gland producing a small, superficial white nodule along lid margin.
Drooping of upper lid margin as a result of neuromuscular problems or trauma.
