Eye Diseases


Glaucoma – Glaucoma condition is characterised by a raised pressure within the eyes due to an enhanced formation of aqueous humour, a difficulty in its exit, or a raised pressure in the existing veins. Glaucoma may be primary (causes within the eye) or secondary (due to another disease or a consequence of another disease).

Dry Eyes – Dry eye produces discomfort and reduces vision when the tear film becomes chronically table or unavailable thereby leading to dryness of the conjunctiva and cornea.

Eye Stye – Eye Stye is a bacteria-infected localised inflammation of the upper or lower eyelid which have Zeis glands that produce a secretion to keep the area moist and soft. Eye stye occurs when staphylococcal bacteria infect one of the tiny glands at the base of the eyelid hairs and then becomes inflamed. An infection bacterium is frequently transferred from one hair shaft to another when rubbing it to relieve itching. Styes usually develop and then come to a head in three to seven days, then burst and heal on their own, in most cases. They will fill with pus then burst spontaneously.

Cataract – Any opacity in the lens within the eye whether congenital or acquired is called “Cataract”.
