If you have noticed pain, redness or swelling along your eyelid, you may be suffering from #blepharitis. Affecting either the outside (along the eyelashes) or inside (moist tissue touching the eye) of the eyelid, treatment may range from warm compresses to antibiotic or steroid drops prescribed by a medical practitioner. #Ophthalmologist

#Keratoconus, often referred to as "KC" is an eye disease that causes the cornea to become progressively thinner. A normal cornea is round or spherical in shape, but with keratoconus the cornea bulges forward, assuming more of a cone shape. As light enters the cone shaped cornea it is bent and distorted and unable to come to a point of clear focus on the light-sensitive retina. #Ophthalmologist #LaserVisionCorrection

Doctors have been routinely treating nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism with incisional procedures such as Radial Keratotomy and Astigmatic Keratotomy for over 25 years. By the early 1980s, they began looking at lasers to improve the precision and predictability of altering the shape of the cornea. #Ophthalmologist #LaserVisionCorrection

Narrow-angle glaucoma is much more rare and is very different from open-angle glaucoma in that eye pressure usually goes up very fast. There may be a feeling of fullness in the eye along with reddening, swelling and blurred vision. If not treated promptly, this glaucoma produces blindness in the affected eye in 3 to 5 days. #Ophthalmologist

Today, for people who have cataracts, there is a procedure to remove the clouded natural lens of the eye and replace it with an advanced, artificial TECNIS Multifocal Lens. #Ophthalmologist

More than 50% of people over the age of 60 (and quite a few younger than that) suffer from #cataracts. #CataractSurgery

A refractive lens exchange corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness by replacing the eye's natural lens, which has the wrong power, with an artificial intra-ocular lens (IOL) implant that has the correct power for the eye. RefractiveSurgerySpecialist
