The epiterretiniana membrane is an eye disease that involves the development of a fibrous membrane area and high vision sensitivity of the retina, th The epiterretiniana membrane is an eye disease that involves the development of a fibrous membrane area and high vision sensitivity of the retina, the macula. When this membrane shrinks and wrinkles produces a series of malfunctions in the retina with consequent alterations in sight. The most common symptoms are progressive visual loss (blurred vision) and distortion in reading images or text. This eye disease occurs in people over 50 years and appears unknown cause. In cases in which no symptoms are evident removal is not necessary (track through regular checks done alone), but in the most severe vitreoretinal surgery should be assessed. ...

As we grow faculties it loses its function, causing macular degeneration, a The macula is the part of the eye responsible for providing a clear view. As we grow faculties it loses its function, causing macular degeneration, also known as AMD. This is a fairly common ailment after 60 years and can occur at various levels, resulting imperceptible in some cases. Conversely, it can also develop much more virulent causing total and progressive loss of sight. Although there is still no definitive treatment to repair the effects of macular degeneration, it is important to make an early diagnosis to slow its progression. Also, it has been found that consumption of antioxidant vitamins and zinc can contribute to this. ...
Macular edema is an eye disease that causes accumulation of fluid in the macula, the part of the eye responsible for providing a clear and sharp visi Macular edema is an eye disease that causes accumulation of fluid in the macula, the part of the eye responsible for providing a clear and sharp vision. It is a very sensitive and important area of the eye, when this fluid accumulation occurs vision is lost and distorted way objects are observed. It can also affect only certain parts of the eye or the whole macular area. It is a pathology associated with diabetic patients because it is a major visual impairment sufferers. Treatment is to seal fluid leaks in the macula, which can be done by laser surgery or therapy intraocular injections. Both techniques provide very good results. ...
Retinal detachment occurs when separating the outer membrane of the retina (called the retinal pigment epithelium) of the inner layer (sensory retina Retinal detachment occurs when separating the outer membrane of the retina (called the retinal pigment epithelium) of the inner layer (sensory retina). This detachment can be caused due to various reasons such as strong myopia or degenerative atrophic processes. Both conditions may be responsible for these layers are separated and that the fluid between the retina and transferred both to accumulate on the bottom. Consequently, in the detached retina segment blindness it occurs. Two of the most crucial signs that may alert the patient that has suffered a detached retina are viewing flashing lights and floaters. Treatment for most patients is surgery. ...
Retinopathy is the common name of any non-inflammatory disease of the retina, the innermost layer of the eyeball responsible for receiving and sending images of the eye to the brain. That is why the term encompasses a range of conditions, the most common and known diabetic retinopathy, which occurs due to elevated blood glucose levels in these patients. The symptoms are not evident during the early stages of this type of retinopathy, which can lead to vision loss, so it is important that diabetics undergo regular eye examinations. Its main treatment is photocoagulation, laser surgery to repair abnormal blood vessels that have been created in the retina. Finally, in the case of blood that has entered into the vitreous humor, a vitrectomy is used, a type of surgery used only if the bleeding has been very generous. ...
Aging causes the eye in some people appear in your field of vision, small dots, circles, lines or cobwebs in motion. The appearance of these floating bodies called floaters and are caused by the formation of tiny bits of gelatin in the vitreous humor, the liquid floating in it. This is a fairly common condition after cataract surgery and quite common in myopic patients. It also causes a very uncomfortable feeling, and in some cases it may be a symptom of a more serious eye condition, so it is absolutely advisable to visit a specialist early as symptoms occur. The ophthalmologist will indicate the most appropriate treatment depending on the patient and although there is no cure for this disease, if they can provide care for this kind of eyes. ...
Intraocular lenses, also known as IOLs, are transparent artificial lenses used to replace the natural lens of the eyes when they are damaged, either by cataracts, nearsightedness or other eye diseases. In people with vision blurred vision due to damage to your natural lens, which is responsible for receiving the light rays with which the images are obtained, replacing it with an intraocular lens patient returns to a correct view . Normally, they are made with flexible and pliable material and are the same size as the original. The intraocular lens is generally implanted in the eye in cataract surgery to replace the natural lens. ...
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. ...
Ocular tumors are all those diseases affecting the eyelids, the eye and orbit. Eyelid tumors are usually benign but in cases that are not, should be regularly monitored. Intraocular tumors include melanoma (the most common in adults), retinoblastoma (most severe during childhood) and choroidal hemangioma (benign but it spreads rapidly and can impair vision). Orbital tumors are less common and have specific causes. However, about 50% of retinoblastoma are congenital and eyelid tumors are related to sun exposure. Most ocular tumors are initially asymptomatic and may go unnoticed. Meanwhile, eyelid tumors are manifested by the appearance of lumps or lesions causing eye discomfort; while in orbit are manifested by pain or ocular abnormalities, decreased vision or movements of the eyeball (proptosis or exophthalmos). ...
Ocular melanoma is a form of cancer that affects melanin, the cells that produce pigment in the body. Despite that it is a rare disease, it is the most common type of cancer that occurs in the eyes. Also, it can affect all parts of the body, especially those less accessible for detection, so it is essential eye examinations done regularly. Treatment depends on the degree of development of melanoma when detected, but mainly there are two types of treatments: radiation therapy, which aims to stop the growth of melanoma or, if possible, eliminate it; ocular melanoma surgery, by which the tumor is removed, unless it is too large (which would require complete removal of the eye, placing an implant in place). ...
Retinitis pigmentosa is considered a serious eye condition caused most common hereditary retinal degeneration. Progressive causes decreased vision due to the death of photoreceptors, eye retina cells. So it can end up causing blindness. Its first symptoms are lack of capacity to adapt to the dark nocturna- blindness and decreased visual field, causing tunnel vision. As the disease progresses, symptoms worsen, so it is important to know the development of the disease in close relatives to know how it will affect the patient. Although there is currently no specific treatment for this disease, consumption of vitamins, minerals and other ingredients may help slow its evolution. In addition, vision therapy is also advised, conducting exercises monitored by an ophthalmologist to improve the visual conditions of the patient. ...
Uveitis is inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye formed by the choroid, ciliary leather, and iris, which surrounds the interior of the eyeball. This is the tissue more blood vessels throughout the body, so it is a very sensitive and prone to infectious and inflammatory processes area. Also, the inflammation causes severe vision loss, so it is very important to treat as soon as possible. Among its causes include infectious, autoimmune, bone and rheumatic diseases, and trauma. Symptoms of uveitis vary depending on the part of the uvea that is affected, if it comes back, vision loss occurs, whereas if it affects the previous, often cause blurred vision, eye pain, redness eyes and photophobia. Similarly, treatment depends on the location: in the case of anterior uveitis inflammatory eye drops are used; to the rear, it is best cortisone orally and through injections around the eye. Immunomodulatory drugs are administered when the disease is associated with a chronic process. Finally, it will only resort to surgery if associated complications such as glaucoma or cataracts occur. ...
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. ...
