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.

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. ...
A corneal ulcer is an open sore which is in the outer layer of the cornea. The cause is usually an infection by a bacteria, virus, fungus or parasite. A corneal ulcer is an open sore which is in the outer layer of the cornea. The cause is usually an infection by a bacteria, virus, fungus or parasite. Other causes include severe dry eyes, severe allergic disease, the eyelids do not close well or foreign bodies in the eye. Your treatment depends on the cause but in cases of severe ulcers is sometimes necessary to perform a corneal transplant.

Dry eye syndrome occurs when there is a shortage or lack of tear to the eye. This is one of the most common diseases in ophthalmology and is caused by an alteration in the tear film, causing discomfort and itching, eye dryness, grittiness and difficulty opening the eyes in the morning. Also, depending on the degree of drying, this condition is classified into light, medium and severe. In some cases it is a consequence of other diseases, so that their treatment will be closely linked to repairing the initial ailment. If this is an isolated pathology, the most common is to proceed to the replacement of these tears, the body does not produce by itself, provide artificial tears to the eyes the basic information it needs to function properly. They are applied in drops as a salve. ...
Fuchs' dystrophy is a corneal dystrophy type characterized by reducing the number of cells forming the inner layer of the cornea, called endothelial cells. Its function is to maintain good transparency in the same and process water that forms the structure of the cornea. Therefore, when they are reduced, water is not processed properly and, by accumulating fluid, corneal tissue becomes thicker and causes it to lose its crystalline transparency. Therefore, the vision is blurred and other problems can occur, such as scarring of the cornea. If this happens, it is necessary to perform a corneal transplant, whereby cornea affected is replaced by a healthy endothelium from a donor. ...
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. ...
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. ...
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. ...
