Choroidal neovascularization (CNV):

Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is a sight-threatening condition characterized by the abnormal growth of blood vessels beneath the retina. This pathological process can have devastating effects on vision and is a leading cause of vision loss in various retinal disorders. The choroid is a highly vascular layer located between the retina and the sclera in the…

Choroidal lymphoma:

Choroidal lymphoma, also referred to as intraocular lymphoma or primary vitreoretinal lymphoma, is a rare form of ocular cancer that predominantly affects the choroid, a layer of blood vessels located between the retina and the sclera at the back of the eye. This condition is characterized by the abnormal development of lymphoid cells within the…

Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE)

A more recent kind of laser refractive surgery is known as small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). This type of surgery uses a laser to treat astigmatism and myopia (nearsightedness) (irregularly shaped cornea). Light rays must pass through your cornea and lens in order for you to see clearly. The light is refracted (bent) by the…

Why can’t I see at a distance?

Nearsightedness, or myopia, is when near objects appear clear but distant objects appear blurry. This happens when light rays incorrectly bend (refract) due to the shape of the eye or specific portions of the eye. Normally, light rays should fall on the retina (the back portion of the eye), to give a clear image. In…

Explaining Sixth Nerve Palsy And Why It Causes Double Vision

When the sixth cranial nerve, (also known as the abducens nerve) is injured or malfunctions, it becomes difficult to move the eyes in certain directions. The lateral rectus muscle of the eye receives signals from the sixth cranial nerve and enables the eye to move in a lateral direction. Each lateral rectus muscle in each…

Why Pigmentary Glaucoma Needs To Be Treated?

A condition known as glaucoma affects the optic nerve permanently and eventually leads to “Tunnel Vision.” Glaucoma is brought on by an increase in ocular pressure brought on by the drainage channel’s obstruction. A kind of secondary open-angle glaucoma known as pigmentary glaucoma is characterised by pigment that leaks from the iris and obstructs the…

Corneal Hysteresis- New in the understanding and treatment of glaucoma

The cornea is the front clear dome shaped structure in the eye. This structure has thickness to it and it is through this structure that we measure the pressure inside the eye known as intraocular pressure. Corneal Hysteresis (CH) is an assessment of the cornea’s ability to absorb and dissipate energy and has been shown to…
