Allergies
The abnormal response of sensitive eyes to contact with allergens and other irritating
substances. Any number of substances can cause an allergic reaction in the eyes of
different people.

Amblyopia
See Lazy Eye

Astigmatism
Astigmatism is an irregular curvature of the lens or the cornea of the eye. Astigmatism is
very common and may accompany nearsightedness or farsightedness.

Blepharitis
An inflammation of the eyelids and eyelashes causing red, irritated, itchy eyelids and the
formation of dandruff like scales on eyelashes.

Cataract
A cataract is a clouding of part of the eye called the lens. Vision becomes blurred or dim
because light cannot pass through the clouded lens to the back of the eye.

Chalazion
A slowly developing lump that forms due to blockage and swelling of an oil gland in the
eyelid.

Color Vision Deficiency
Color vision deficiency is the inability to distinguish certain shades of color or in more
severe cases, see colors at all. The term "color blindness" is also used to describe this
visual condition, but very few people are completely color blind.

Conjunctivitis
Conjunctivitis, commonly known as pink eye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the
clear membrane that covers the white part of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids.
Conjunctivitis can be caused by infections, allergies, or substances that irritate the eyes.

Convergence Insufficiency
An eye coordination problem in which the eyes have a tendency to drift outward when
reading or doing close work.

Corneal Abrasion
A cut or scratch on the cornea, the clear front cover of the eye.

Crossed Eyes
A condition in which both eyes do not look at the same place at the same time.

Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetes affects the eye in a number of ways. The most damaging condition occurs when
the fine network of blood vessels in the retina – the light-sensitive inner lining of the back
of the eye – leaks fluid, known as Diabetic Retinopathy. Cataracts also develop earlier and
progress more rapidly in diabetics than in other people.

Dry Eye
In dry eye syndrome, the eye doesn't produce enough tears, or the tears have a chemical
composition that causes them to evaporate too quickly. Rubbing the eyes worsens the
irritation.

Farsightedness
A vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close objects do
not come into proper focus.

Floaters & Spots
The shadowy images that are seen moving in your field of vision caused by particles
floating in the fluid that fills the inside of the eye.

Glaucoma
Glaucoma is the name for a group of eye conditions in which the optic nerve is damaged,
often in association with raised pressure within the eye. This leads to a reduction in the
field of vision and in the ability to see clearly.

Hordeolum
See Sty

Hyperopia
See Farsightedness

Keratitis
An inflammation or infection of the cornea, the clear front cover of the eye.

Keratoconus
An eye disorder causing progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea, the clear front
cover of the eye.

Lazy Eye
The loss or lack of development of clear vision in just one eye. It is not due to eye health
problems and eyeglasses or contact lenses can’t fully correct the reduced vision caused
by lazy eye.

Learning-related Vision Problems
Vision disorders that interfere with reading and learning.

Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration is a degenerative condition of the macula. The macula is the part
of the retina responsible for the sharp, central vision needed to read or drive.

Migraine with Aura
See Ocular Migraine

Myopia
See Nearsightedness

Nearsightedness
A vision condition in which you can see close objects clearly, but objects farther away are
blurred.

Nystagmus
A vision condition in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements, often
resulting in reduced vision.

Ocular Allergies
The abnormal response of sensitive eyes to contact with allergens and other irritating
substances.

Ocular Hypertension
An increase in the pressure inside the eye above the range considered normal, without
any detectable changes in vision or damage to the structures of the eye.

Ocular Migraine
A type of severe headache accompanied by various visual symptoms.

Pink Eye
See Conjunctivitis

Pinquecula
An abnormal growth of tissue on the conjunctiva, the clear membrane that covers the
white of the eye.

Chalazion
A slowly developing lump that forms due to blockage and swelling of an oil gland in the
eyelid.

Presbyopia
An age-related vision condition in which there is a gradual loss of the eye’s ability to focus
on near objects.

Pterygium
An abnormal growth of tissue on the conjuctiva, the clear membrane that covers the
white of the eye, and the adjacent cornea, the clear front surface of the eye.

Ptosis
A drooping of the upper eyelid.

Retinal Detachment
Retinal detachment is a rare but serious and sight-threatening event which occurs when
the retina – the light-sensitive inner lining of the back of the eye – becomes separated
from the underlying tissue. This may be caused by a hole or tear in the retina which
allows fluid to get underneath, weakening the attachment of the retina which then
becomes detached - rather like wallpaper peeling off a damp wall.

Retinitis Pigmentosa
A group of inherited disorders of the retina, the light sensitive lining at the back of the eye,
which cause poor night vision and a progressive loss of side vision.

Retinoblastoma
A rare type of eye cancer occurring in young children that develops in the retina, the light
sensitive lining at the back of the eye.

Strabismus
See Crossed Eyes

Sty
An infection of an oil gland in the eyelid.

Subconjunctival Hemorrhage
An accumulation of blood underneath the conjunctiva, the clear membrane covering the
white part of the eye.

Uveitis
An inflammation of one or more of the structures that make up the middle layer of the eye
called the uvea.
