Glaucoma is a treatable disease (if discovered early enough) of the eyes that results from the the
normal fluid pressure inside the eyes slowly rising beyond what is normal. This pressure build up
can lead to vision loss or even blindness. It is very important that you have a professional
check your eyes once a year.
Children experience a variety of eye problems, many quite distinct from adult eye diseases. Pediatric ophthalmologists are specially trained to manage the following disorders:
Infections (conjunctivitis), Strabismus, Amblyopia, Blocked tear ducts, Ptosis, Retinopathy of prematurity,
Nystagmus, Visual inattention, Pediatric cataracts, Pediatric glaucoma, Congenital malformations,
Orbital tumours, myopia, astigmatism, Accommodative insufficiency, Convergence insufficiency, asthenopia and
evaluation of visual issues in education, including dyslexia and attention deficit disorder.
Retinal diseases can affect the area of the retina that serves your central vision (the macula and the fovea at the center of the macula). Many retinal diseases share common symptoms and treatments, but each has unique characteristics. The goal of retinal disease treatments is to stop or slow disease progression and preserve, improve or restore vision.
Lasik and Refractive Surgery
Lasik, commonly referred to as laser eye surgery, is a type of refractive surgery for the
correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the
shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser.
A mechanical microkeratome (a blade device) or a laser keratome (a laser device) is used to cut a
flap in the cornea. A hinge is left at one end of this flap. The flap is folded back revealing
the stroma, the middle section of the cornea. Pulses from a computer-controlled laser vaporize
a portion of the stroma and the flap is replaced.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve
the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years

If the cornea of your eye becomes damaged through disease, infection, or injury, the resulting scars can interfere with vision by blocking or distorting light as it enters the eye.
The term "corneal disease" refers to a variety of conditions that affect mainly the cornea. These include infections, degenerations, and many other disorders of the cornea that may arise mostly as a result of heredity.
