Common Refractive Disorders : Myopia (nearsightedness) happens when light from a distant object focuses in front of the retina. Hyperopia (farsightedness) happens when light from a distant object focuses behind the retina. Astigmatism happens when a point of light from an object doesn't focus into a point image, but instead, forms two line foci and a blurred zone between. It's like the distortion one sees in a "fun-house" Presbyopia, or "eyes-over-forty," is a condition caused by the lens of the eye losing its elasticity with age. Common Ocular Diseases : Cataracts can develop from many causes, but aging is the primary risk factor. Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, characterized by slow, progressive damage of the nerve over time, and, in many cases, elevated intra-ocular pressure. Age related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the macula, the part of the eye that allows you to see fine detail. Diabetic Retinopathy refers to a group of eye problems that people with diabetes may face as a complication of diabetes.
