Conditions

Cataract

A cataract is one of the most common eye conditions, which causes blurry vision as a result of clouding of the natural lens in the eye. The human lens is located behind the iris (the coloured portion of the eye), and it is mostly made up of water and proteins. These specific proteins provide the lens its transparent structure.

Pterygium

A pterygium is a benign or non-cancerous overgrowth of the conjunctiva, which is a clear, thin layer that covers the white part of the eye (sclera). A pterygium may occur in one or both eyes. Read More

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is an eye condition in which the normal, round-shaped cornea becomes thin and bulges outward to form a cone shape (changing from the shape of an orange to the shape of a lemon). Keratoconus usually affects both eyes, but it may affect one eye more than the other initially. Read More

Fuchs' Endothelial Dystrophy

Fuchs’ endothelial dystrophy (FED) is a relatively common eye condition that affects the deepest layer of the cornea (endothelium). The endothelium is a densely-packed sheet of cells, which helps to maintain the transparency of the cornea by regulating the flow of fluid in and out of the cornea. Read More

OSSN

Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) is a broad term, which denotes a spectrum of malignancy arising from the surface layer of the eye (conjunctiva and cornea). It can be thought of as a “skin cancer” of the eye. Read More

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is one of the leading cause of blindness worldwide. If glaucoma is diagnosed early, vision loss can be slowed or prevented. If you have been diagnosed with the condition, you will generally need treatment for the rest of your life. Read More

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related Macular degeneration (AMD) is a group of chronic, degenerative retinal eye diseases that cause progressive loss of central vision. AMD is the leading cause of legal blindness and severe vision loss in Australia, responsible for 50% of all cases of blindness. Read More

Myopia

Myopia (near-sightedness) is one of the most common refractive errors worldwide. It is a vision condition in which people are able to see close objects clearly, but objects farther away appear blurred. People with myopia can typically see well enough to read a book or computer screen but struggle to see objects farther away. Read More

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry Eye Syndrome is one of the most common eye conditions which have often been overlooked. Dry Eye Syndrome is characterised by the lack of adequate lubrication for the eyes. Tears which compose of water, fatty oils and mucus play an important role in lubricating and nourishing the outer surface (cornea) of the eye. Dry eye syndrome may occur if you don't produce enough tears or if you produce poor quality tears. Read More

Diabetic Macular Oedema

Diabetic macular oedema is an eye-related complication in diabetic patients, which is associated with the accumulation of fluid in the central portion of the retina (macula). The macula is a small area of the retina at the back of the eye, which is responsible for the centre of our field of vision. Over the course of illness, diabetic patients may experience a complication known as diabetic retinopathy. Read More
