20/20 Vision: 20/20 vision is the term used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet.
Amblyopia: Amblyopia (lazy eye) is the loss or lack of the full development of vision in one eye that is not fully correctable with lenses and is not the result of any identifiable eye health problem. Amblyopia is usually due to conditions such as crossed-eyes (strabismus) or a large difference in the refractive error between the two eyes.
Astigmatism: You see blurry or distorted objects at all distances, because the front part of your eye (corneal is slightly irregular in shape.
Cataracts: A clouding of the clear lens of your eye that distorts entering light, causing blurred or hazy vision. Can lead to blindness if not diagnosed and treated.
Color Deficiency: Color deficiency occurs when your ability to distinguish colors and shades is less than normal.
Conjunctivitis: An inflammation of the conjunctiva, a thin, transparent layer covering the surface of the inner eyelid and a portion of the front of the eye.
Crossed-eyes: Strabismus (crossed-eyes) is a vision condition in which your eyes are not properly aligned with each other. One or both eyes may turn in (Esotropia), out (Esotropia) or down (hypotropia).
Diabetes: Diabetes is a disease that prevents your body from making or using insulin to break down sugar in your bloodstream.
Dry Eye: The condition experienced when your eyes do not produce enough tears or produce tears that do not have the proper chemical composition.
Eye-Coordination:Treatment of crossed-eyes often includes the use of eyeglasses, prisms and vision therapy. In extreme cases, surgery may be needed.
Farsightedness (Hyperopia): You see far objects more clearly than close ones.
Glaucoma: A build-up of excess fluid in your eye, causing internal pressure and damage to the optic nerve. Can result in severe vision loss and even blindness.
Nearsightedness (Myopia): You see close objects more clearly than those at a distance.
Presbyopia: A natural part of aging begins to blur your reading and near vision by about age 40-45 and gradually worsens.
Spots and Floaters: Spots (often called floaters) are small semi-transparent or cloudy specks or particles within the eye that become noticeable when they fall within the line of sight. They may also appear with flashes of light.
Uveitis (Iritis): Anterior uveitis is an inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, which includes the iris and adjacent tissue, known as the cillary body.
Vision Therapy: Vision therapy is an individualized treatment program prescribed to improve conditions like crossed-eyes (strabismus) or lazy eye (amblyopia) and to help you learn, relearn or reinforce specific vision skills.
