A dry eye is the feeling that the eyes are not producing enough tears. Often, this is accompanied by a burning or stinging sensation.
Eye fatigue is the sensation in the eyes that occurs when the eyes have been working for an extended period. Some people experience it after spending a long day in front of a computer, while others experience it after reading in bed.
Refractive errors are defects in the lens of the eye that cause vision to be blurred. The most common refractive errors are nearsightedness and farsightedness. An astigmatism is also a form of refractive error.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve. This damage can cause vision loss and blindness.
Macular degeneration is an age-related disease that causes damage to the macula, the light-sensitive part of the retina. The macula is responsible for central vision.
Cataracts are vision disorders that cause clouding in the lens of the eye and cause vision loss. They can be caused by aging, injury, or certain diseases. Sometimes cataracts are accompanied by glaucoma, making it hard to see.
An eye emergency occurs when your eye requires immediate care. The most common eye emergencies are infections and foreign bodies in the eye.
The most common types of eye infections are conjunctivitis and keratitis. Conjunctivitis is an infection of the membranes that line the eyes. Keratitis is an infection of the cornea, the eye's transparent outer layer. Common symptoms of eye infections include off-colored discharge, pain, sores on the iris, and blurred vision.
When you have a foreign object in your eye, it can cause an eye emergency. The most common types of foreign objects in the eye are pieces of dirt and eyelashes. If you cannot flush the thing out of your eye at home, your optometrist can remove it.
