How do diseases of the eye manifest themselves in disturbances on vision?

Disease of the eye can manifest themselves in various ways and can cause different types of disturbances in vision. Here are a few examples. 1. Refractive errors: These are the most common causes of vision problems and occur when the shape of the eye prevents light from focusing on the retina correctly. This can cause blurry vision, difficulty seeing and certain distances, or double vision. 2. Cataracts: Cataracts occurs when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, which can cause vision to become hazy or blurred, particularly in bright light.

3. Glaucoma: Glaucoma is a condition where the pressure inside the eye damages the optic nerve, leading to vision loss. It can cause tunnel vision or loss of peripheral vision all together. 4. Macular Degeneration: This is a condition when the macula, the part of the retina responsible for central vision, deteriorates. It can cause a loss of central vision or distortion of images. 5. Diabetic Retinopathy: This is a complication of diabetes where high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in the retina.

This can cause vision to become blurry or distorted, and may eventually lead to blindness. Other eye vision disturbances are as follows. 6. Conjunctivitis: Also known as pink eye, this in an infection or inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin layer that covers the white part of the eye. 7. Dry Eye Syndrome: This is a condition where the eyes do not produce enough tears or the tears evaporate too quickly, leading to dry, red, and irritated eyes. 8. Blepharitis: This is an inflammation of the eyelids, which can cause redness, itching and irritation.

9. Retinal Detachment: This is a serious condition where the retina becomes detached from the underlying tissue, which can cause vision loss or blindness. 10. Uveitis: This is an inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye, which can cause eye pain, redness, and sensitivity too light. 11. Strabismus: This is a condition where the eyes do not align properly, causing double vision or blurred vision.

12. Amblyopia: Also known as lazy eye, this is a condition where one eye does not develop properly during childhood, leading to poor vision in the eye. 13. Optic Neuritis: This is an inflammation of the optic nerve, which can cause vision loss, eye pain, and eye movement problems.

If you are having eye problems see an ophthalmologist. An ophthalmologist is an eye care specialist. Unlike optometrists and opticians, ophthalmologists are doctors of medicine (MD) or doctors of osteopathy (DO) who have specific training and experience diagnosing and treating eye and vision conditions.
