Visual Problems Requiring Evaluation - Fraser Valley Cataract and Laser

CORNEAL DISORDERS

The cornea is the clear surface of the eye that is responsible for protecting the iris and the lens, and focusing light on the retina. It can become inflamed or infected, or it can develop an abnormal shape or curvature that compromises vision and causes pain, tearing or other symptoms.

CATARACTS

Cataracts are a clouding of the eye’s normally clear lens. With age, the proteins that make up the lens start to clump together, clouding the lens. Over time, cataracts make it more difficult to see clearly. Having a cataract is a little like looking through a frosted or dirty window. New techniques and technology at FVCL allow cataract surgery to be a quick and relatively painless procedure. Moreover, special higher-technology lenses implanted in the eye can help you see even without glasses.

PROBLEMS WITH THE OPTIC NERVE

The optic nerve connects the retina to the brain. When it sustains damage or is affected by a disease, vision loss can result. An example is glaucoma, a disease in which the pressure inside the eye grows and eventually damages the optic nerve. Or, the optic nerve can become inflamed and lose its protective sheath, causing blurring and blind spots.

CONJUNCTIVAL AND SCLERAL DISORDERS

The conjunctiva is the membrane lining the eyelid and covering the sclera — the white layer covering the eyeball. These structures help to keep foreign objects out of the eyes and to provide structural strength and protection. They are susceptible to inflammation, infection, and irritation.
