EYE CONDITIONS


DRY EYE


Dry eye syndrome (‘dry eyes’) is a common cause of eye irritation. It mainly affects older people. Artificial tears, gels and soothing ointments usually ease the symptoms. Punctal plugs or punctal cautery are also minimally invasive options for the management of this problem and can be arranged for you at the clinic.



GLAUCOMA


Glaucoma is a disorder in which the optic nerve head at the back of the eye is damaged, leading to progressive, irreversible loss of peripheral vision. The Face & Eye Clinic has a leading specialist in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma – Mr Leon Au.

DIABETIC RETINOPATHY


Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder of the back of the eye caused by diabetes mellitus, a condition associated with a high blood sugar level.



FLOATERS


Floaters are small condensations of normally clear tissue that ‘float’ about with movement of the eye in the vitreous humour (a jelly like substance) at the back of the eye. A consultation with a specialist vitreo-retinal surgeon at Face & Eye can be arranged to assess your problem and to discuss the management options.



KERATOCONUS


Keratoconus is a condition which causes reduced vision due to a more extreme degree of astigmatism (where the front of the eye is shaped a little like a rugby ball as opposed to a football).



WATERY EYE


The condition referred to as ‘watering eye’ or ‘watery eye’, or the excessive production of tears to the point where they can overflow down the cheek is known as “epiphora”. It can have many different causes, and the treatment will depend on the cause e.g. a blocked tear duct. Our oculoplastic surgeons are experts in the assessment and management of this condition.
