Your eye works a lot like a camera. Light rays focus through your lens onto the retina, a layer of light-sensitive cells at the back of the eye. Similar to photographic film, the retina allows the image to be “seen” by the brain.

The cornea is the outermost layer of the eye. It's the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. The cornea helps shield the rest of the eye from germs, dust and other harmful matter. The cornea functions like a window that controls and focuses the entry of light into the eye. It contributes between 65-75% of the eye's total focusing power.

CEENTA offers corneal cross-linking to treat keratoconus, a progressive thinning and distortion of the cornea, which leads to blurry vision.

Diabetes is a condition in which the pancreas does not produce enough, or any, insulin, resulting in an excess of sugar in the blood. There are different variations of this disease, but all can affect the eye. Diabetes can damage specific parts of the eye: retina, vitreous, lens, optic nerve.

Your eyes constantly produce tears at a slow and steady rate so that they stay moist and comfortable. Some people are not able to produce enough tears or the appropriate quality of tears to keep their eyes healthy or comfortable. This condition is known as dry eye.

A complete eye examination does more than determine how clearly you see from a distance and which lens prescription, if necessary, will give you the best possible vision. Your doctor will also run a number of tests to check the health and function of your entire eye.

Eye infections are caused by a virus or bacteria in the environment that attacks the eye. The most common of these infections is conjunctivitis. Eye infections can happen in almost any part of the eye, such as: the eyelid (blepharitis), the vitreous (vitritis), the optic nerve (neuroretinitis) and the cornea (keratitis).

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, which transmits the images you see from the eye to the brain. The optic nerve is made up of many nerve fibers (like an electric cable with its numerous wires). Glaucoma damages nerve fibers, which can cause blind spots and vision loss. Glaucoma is often, but not always, caused by a buildup of the pressure inside the eye, known as intraocular pressure (IOP). When the aqueous humor (a clear liquid that normally flows in and out of the eye) cannot drain properly, pressure builds up in the eye. The resulting increase in IOP can damage the optic nerve and lead to vision loss.

LASIK stands for Laser In Situ Keratomileusis. PRK stands for Photo Refractive Keratectomy. LASIK (with a flap) and PRK (without a flap) are both Laser Vision Correction (LVC) or refractive surgery procedures used to correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astimgatism. These procedures use excimer laser technology introduced in the 1980’s.

Pediatric ophthalmologists are medical and surgical doctors who specialize in the eye problems of children. In particular, vision develops in the brain until about age 9 years and can be affected by eyes that are not straight or do not focus correctly. A child can grow up with good vision in each eye if these problems are caught early, treated and maintained.

Today, many people choose to correct their refractive errors with techniques other than wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. Surgeries like laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, improve vision by permanently changing the shape of the cornea to redirect how light is focused on the retina. However, in certain cases, LASIK or other refractive surgeries that reshape the cornea may not be a patient’s best option. In these cases, instead of reshaping the cornea, the eye’s natural lens can be removed and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL) with a procedure called refractive lens exchange (RLE).

Strabismus refers to misaligned eyes. Esotropia (“crossed” eyes) occurs when the eyes turn inward. Exotropia occurs when the eyes turn outward. When one eye is higher than the other, it is called hypertropia (for the higher eye) or hypotropia (for the lower eye). Strabismus can be subtle or obvious, and can occur occasionally or constantly. It can affect one eye or shift between the eyes.

Uveitis refers to inflammation of the uveal tract of the eye: the iris, ciliary body and choroid.
