Cataracts, also known as facosclerosis are a total or partial obstruction of the lens or lens of the eye, whose function is to convert the light rays Cataracts, also known as facosclerosis are a total or partial obstruction of the lens or lens of the eye, whose function is to convert the light rays obtained images on the retina. So when this part is obstructed eye, vision becomes weak and blurred. There are many types of cataracts, and is a fairly common condition that increases with age. The only possible cure cataract and restore a correct view treatment is surgery to eradicate it, but it is only recommended when the patient suffers so severe discomfort that do not allow you to continue your daily life as normal or wearing glasses. The operation to correct cataract extraction is based on the area of the lens that is damaged and its replacement by an intraocular lens. ...
The Guttata cornea is an eye disease characterized by the appearance of bumps in the form of drops in this part of the eye. Being injuries in the corn The Guttata cornea is an eye disease characterized by the appearance of bumps in the form of drops in this part of the eye. Being injuries in the cornea, refraction main element that allows a clear view of the objects, causing loss of visual acuity. It is a condition that worsens over the years and for which, except in very advanced cases, treatment is not necessary. In patients where the Guttata cornea prevents develop normally your daily life, you can perform a corneal transplant, a very common and simple operation as to perform it is not necessary to treat the entire cornea but only the part affected. ...
Corneal transplantation, also known as penetrating keratoplasty, is the total or partial replacement of the cornea, the clear outer lens on the front Corneal transplantation, also known as penetrating keratoplasty, is the total or partial replacement of the cornea, the clear outer lens on the front of the eye and responsible for providing vision. This is one of the most common transplant and is done with the cornea of a recently deceased donor, and whose eyes have been previously analyzed to ensure their validity for that operation. Corneal transplantation is performed when severe vision problems suffer from various dysfunctions in the cornea. The corneal transplant intervention is minimally invasive and involves removal of a small piece of the cornea and the placement of the new over the old cornea by suturing. ...
Keratoconus is a variation of the conical cornea caused by an alternation of the internal structure of the corneal tissue. Besides being a condition Keratoconus is a variation of the conical cornea caused by an alternation of the internal structure of the corneal tissue. Besides being a condition that changes the appearance of the eye, causing poor vision, as it is usually accompanied by a high astigmatism, blurred or distorted vision. Alteration of collagen fibers contained within the cornea is responsible for the evolution of keratoconus, to which various treatments. On the one hand, it can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses, but it is also possible to implement intracorneal rings, using a very safe surgical procedure that changes the corneal curvature. Another of the most used is the crosslinking treatment, a technique of applying rivoflavina- substance that sensitizes the collagen-and prevents the increase of keratoconus. Finally, for the more severe stages of the disease, the only solution is corneal transplantation. ...
Refractive surgery is responsible for changing the anatomy of the eye to correct vision defects such as farsightedness, astigmatism or myopia. There are several types of refractive procedures, most notably of laser surgery, an increasingly common and widespread thanks to the good results and has the proven technical safety of operation. Specifically, refractive laser surgery is to change the size of the cornea (responsible for our vision) through the application of the laser inside. For this it is necessary to lift a layer of corneal tissue, which will be relocated once the intervention and does not require points. ...
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness and hipometropía, is an ocular abnormality resulting focus vision on distant objects because of a dysfunction in the retina. Thus, although the view is normal at close range, as you look away, they are gradually blurring the images. There are many degrees of myopia, high myopia being which exceeds the 6.5 diopters. The most commonly used for correcting this ailment resources are glasses and contact lenses, but increasingly patients are operated by laser surgery, the application of which depends on the characteristics of each eye there. This intervention consists of modifying the surface of the cornea correcting the diopter affected. Finally, in the most severe myopia, the placement of intraocular lenses, which function is the same as the outer lenses but located within the eye and permanently is possible. ...
Presbyopia, also known as farsightedness, is a common condition caused by aging of the eye lens, which appears especially from 40 to 45 years. More specifically, it is a lens accommodation, one of the most important parts of the eye to correct vision, and which is responsible for focusing images on the retina so we can see the sharp objects. Therefore presbyopia causes a distorted view of nearby objects, affecting close up view. This condition can be corrected with the use of glasses or contact lenses and surgery. The latter will depend on the patient's age, the state of your lens and eye defect have. Also, there are two techniques for this operation: the use of lasers, and phacoemulsification with intraocular lens placement, in which an artificial lens inside the eye is placed. ...
Vision problems encompass a host of pathologies. The most common are refractive comprising: the nearsightedness or myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. Its causes may be genetically different, due to aging or other diseases such as macular degeneration caused by diabetes. ...
The vitreous humor is located between the inner surface of the retina and the posterior surface of the lens. It is a formed by 99%, water clear, gelatinous liquid. The remaining 1% are proteins, hyaluronic acid, collagen, chloride, sodium, glucose and potassium. Its function is to protect the retina making its surface remains uniform, getting a correct view. Sometimes this becomes opaque gelatinous mass making viewing difficult. When this happens it is necessary to resort to surgery of the vitreous, also known as vitrectomy. This involves removing the vitreous damaged, replacing it with a saline solution. It is a resource used only when vision has decreased considerably and prevents follow a normal rhythm of life for the patient. Besides, this procedure can cause some complications, such as infection, intraocular bleeding and retinal detachment. ...
