Common Eye Diseases

Some diseases of the eye are more common than others. These are a few of the common eye diseases you may be concerned with.

Cataracts – Cloudiness in the natural lens of the eye that causes vision that is cloudy, dim, or blurry. Cataracts are common among the elderly population with nearly half of the population having a cataract by the age of 65 and nearly everyone over the age of 75 has had at least one.

Glaucoma – This complex disease comes in various forms – all causing damage to the optic nerves that results in loss of vision or, more specifically, a diminished field of vision.

Macular Degeneration – This is the leading cause of vision loss, with more than 10 million Americans affected. It is caused by deterioration of the retina’s central portion (called the macula).

Diabetic Retinopathy – Diabetes-related damage to the retina of the eye.

Dry Eye – Lack of lubrication or moisture on the eye’s surface, dry eye can be caused by a variety of conditions.
