The nerve fibers within the optic nerve send information to the brain to process what you see. Glaucoma is an eye disease that interrupts this process by damaging the optic nerve, which may result in a permanent loss of vision. Click here to find out more.
The eye is comprised of several different parts working together to bring images into focus. The eye’s retina allows the eye to sense light. If the varying levels of sugar associated with diabetes damage the blood vessels of the retina (called diabetic retinopathy), this can lead to damage in adjacent parts of the eye. Left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can lead to further vision loss or blindness. Click here to find out more.
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision reduction in people over the age of 55. It is an incurable disease caused by the deterioration of the macula, an area located in the retina at the center back of the eye. The macula allows you to see fine detail when reading, driving or performing other everyday tasks. If photoreceptor cells in the macula deteriorate, they stop sending impulses to the optic nerve and vision decreases. Click here to find out more.
Floaters are small specks or “clouds” moving around in your field of vision, which are tiny clumps of protein inside the Vitreous (the clear gel-like fluid that fills the inside of the eye).
Floaters are often seen when looking at a plain background like a blank white wall or the blue sky. While these floaters look like they are in front of the eye, they are actually inside the eye. You are seeing the shadows of the tiny protein clumps on the retina.
Floaters can appear in different shapes, such as cobwebs, clouds, circles, lines or little dots. Click here to find out more.
