Several common ocular diseases affect individuals of all ages around the world. Understanding their symptoms, risk factors, and treatment options is crucial to preserving healthy vision.

There are many different issues that can affect our eyes and vision. Many people are familiar with myopia and hyperopia. Myopia, aka nearsightedness, is where you can see nearby objects clearly, but ones further away appear blurred. Hyperopia is the opposite, with far-away objects being seen clearly. However, far fewer people understand another very common refractive eye problem – astigmatism.
Any part of our body can become injured during our lifetime, including our eyes. Unfortunately, our eyes are extremely sensitive, and any sort of damage can potentially have very serious consequences for the health of our eyes and even our long-term vision.

Eye conditions are very common and there are a number of different types which can affect us, often at any point of our lifetime. Many are fairly minor and will resolve themselves without intervention.
