Learn More About Eye Diseases

What is conjunctivitis?
You may know this eye condition as pink eye but the actual name is conjunctivitis. It's an infection or inflammation of the conjunctiva – the thin, protective membrane that covers the surface of the eyeball and inner surface of the eyelids. Conjunctivitis is caused by bacteria, viruses, allergens and other irritants like smoke, dust, and is very contagious.

What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an increase of the intramuscular pressure in the eyes. This causes damage to the optic nerve without any signs or symptoms, during the early stages. When left untreated, glaucoma can lead to a decrease in peripheral vision and eventually blindness. Unfortunately, there is no cure for glaucoma, but it can be controlled with medication.

What is a cataract and how will it affect my vision?
A cataract normally starts small and has no initial effect on your vision. As it begins to progress, then it becomes harder to read and perform a normal task that you do with your eyes. Your doctor may recommend a stronger eyeglass prescription in the early stages to help with glare. When your cataract begins to disrupt your life, then your doctor will suggest cataract removal surgery.
