Eye Care

Eye care technology is a steadily evolving field with the goal of improving global eye health. There are several new techniques and procedures that are gaining in popularity and may well become future standards in eye care. This technology is still relatively new, so not all surgeons have access to these methods.

 

The most common disorder of the conjunctiva is inflammation (conjunctivitis). There are many causes of inflammation, including infections by bacteria (including chlamydia), viruses, or fungi; allergic reactions; chemicals or foreign bodies in the eye; and overexposure to sunlight. Conjunctivitis tends to be relatively short-lived, although it sometimes lasts for months or years. Long-standing conjunctivitis is often caused by chronic irritation of the eye that occurs when an eyelid is turned outward (ectropion) or inward (entropion), by some eye drops, or by chronic dryness. Whatever the cause, people with conjunctivitis typically have similar symptoms, such as redness, itching or irritation, discharge, and, sometimes, slightly blurred vision. Eyelids are crucial to the health of the underlying eye. They provide coverage of the cornea and aid in the distribution and elimination of tears. An exposed cornea will develop epithelial defects, scarring, vascularization or infection. Resulting symptoms include ocular irritation, pain and loss of vision. Eyelid closure distributes tears over the surface of the eye and pumps them through the lacrimal puncta into the tear duct thus, tearing or epiphora may result from various eyelid disorders.
