Glaucoma

Glaucoma is often called the "silent thief of sight", because most types typically cause no pain and produce no symptoms until noticeable vision loss occurs.  

Macular Degeneration

Often called AMD or ARMD, macular degeneration is the part of the retina responsible for the sharp, central vision needed to read or drive.  

Myopia & Hyperopia

Both myopia (shortsightedness) and Hyperopia (farsightedness) are common eye conditions that mean light does not focus on the retina of the eye.  

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a condition in which the lens of the eye loses its ability to focus, making it difficult to see objects up close.

Pseudotumor Cerebri

Pseudotumor cerebri occurs when the intracranial pressure (the pressure inside the skill) increases.

Restasis

Restasis is the first and only Food and Drug Administration approved medication that treats the cause of dry eyes, not just the symptoms. 

Strabismus (Crossed Eyes)

Crossed eyes, or strabismus as it is medically termed is a condition in which both eyes do not look at the same place at the same time. 

Subconjuctival Hemorrhage

If for any reason one of the blood vessels under the conjunctiva hemorrhages, the blood from the
hemorrhage is trapped under the conjunctiva. This trapped blood is the redness you see when you have
a subconjunctival hemorrhage.
