There are a variety of eye conditions. Some are mild, some are chronic and a few others just vanish as soon as they came. The information below will help you understand some of these issues a bit better. But the most important rule is to listen to your body: If something doesn’t feel right, pay a visit to your doctor.
The following list contains a few common eye conditions, such as dry eye syndrome, presbyopia and astigmatism. For information about glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, visit our Eye Disease Management section. You can also find a more comprehensive list of eye conditions in our Eye Health Library.
Please book an appointment with our eye doctor if you have any concerns.
Astigmatism is a very common eye condition that’s easily corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses and on some occasions, surgery.
- Dry Eyes
Dry eye syndrome (DES) is a chronic condition that develops when your eyes do not produce and maintain enough tears to keep the eye’s surface lubricated.
- Presbyopia Treatment
As we reach middle age, particularly after age 40, it is common to start to experience difficulty with reading and performing other tasks that require near vision. This is because, with age, the lens of our eye becomes increasingly inflexible, making it harder to focus on close objects. This condition is called presbyopia and eventually, it happens to some extent, to everyone as they age.
