Eye Health

Blue Light And Your Eyes

Did you know that blue light from computer screens and digital devices could be affecting your eyes? Watch the video to find out more.

Watch Video

Amblyopia

Amblyopia, or Lazy Eye, is a reduced vision, generally in only one eye. The condition usually results from poor eye co-ordination, from having a turned eye, or after having one eye which requires a far greater lens power.

Watch Video

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is an out-of-roundness of one or more surfaces in the eye's optical system.

Watch Video

Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding or haze of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Opacities in the lens obstruct light from passing through and being focused on to the retina.

Watch Video

Diabetic Eye Disease

Approximately 4% of people have diabetes, often undiagnosed. Diabetes can damage many parts of the body, including the eyes, causing vision problems, glaucoma, cataract and diabetic retinopathy.

Watch Video

Dry Eye Disease

Dry eye is a disease of the tears and the ocular surface. There is a reduction in the quality and quantity of the tear film that lubricates and protects the outer surface. The symptoms that commonly occur with dry eye are burning, grittiness, stinging, and watery eyes.

Watch Video

Floaters

Spots and floaters are semi-transparent specks of natural materials inside the eye, which sometimes can be seen floating in the field of vision.

Watch Video

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease which slowly destroys the optic nerve at the back of the eye. In some cases in may move rapidly. It is usually caused by increased pressure inside the eye though it may be caused by poor blood supply or a weakness of the optic nerve. Over 300,000 Australians have glaucoma. It is more common as we age but it can occur at any age.

Watch Video

Hyperopia

Hyperopia, or Long-sightedness, causes a person to see clearer at far than at near distances.

Watch Video

Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration (MD) is a disease that destroys the central vision that we use for everyday tasks such as reading and driving. It is the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss in Australia. For patients older than 50 years, one in seven will have some sign of it. While there is presently no cure for MD if it is detected early enough we can slow its progression.

Watch Video

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

Meibomian glands are the tiny oil glands which line the margin of the eyelids. These glands secrete oils onto the surface of the eye to prevent your tears from evaporating. Dysfunction of these glands is very common.

Watch Video

Myopia Control

Myopia or short-sightedness is increasing at an alarming rate. The onset of myopia at an early age brings with it the likelihood of life-long eye care, and there is a significantly increased risk of serious ocular health problems with high myopia, which can lead to vision loss and blindness. It is expected that 50% of the population will be myopic by 2050 and that 20% of those will have high myopia.

Watch Video

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is the normal ageing condition affecting the eye's ability to focus on near objects.

Watch Video

Pterygium

One of the most common effects of UV damage to the eye is pterygium. This is a triangular growth of thickened degenerative tissue on the white of the eye (the sclera) that may also extend onto the cornea (the window at the front of the eye).

UV Damage

In recent years, it has been shown that just like sunburn and skin cancers, exposure to ultra-violet (UV) radiation also causes eye damage.

Excessive UV exposure has become an increasing problem since the depletion of the ozone layer.
