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. ...
Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes progressive loss of nerve fibers in the optic nerve, whose proper functioning is essential to see clearly. Amo Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes progressive loss of nerve fibers in the optic nerve, whose proper functioning is essential to see clearly. Among its causes they are various, include vascular diseases and high blood pressure. As it is a generative disease, it is important to make an early diagnosis. In this regard, experts advise checking the view from 40, although the age of risk for glaucoma is established after 60 years. Although the vision waning because of this disease can not recover, you can prevent progression of glaucoma by lowering the intraocular pressure. This can be accomplished, according to the patient and medical recommendations, with the administration of drugs, laser techniques or noninvasive surgery. ...
Refractive surgery is responsible for changing the anatomy of the eye to correct vision defects such as farsightedness, astigmatism or myopia. There 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 i 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. ...
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. ...
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. ...
