Eye Care

Did you know that your eyes are the only place in the human body that we can see the finest blood capillaries without doing any incisions?

Here are a few common eye conditions our experts can find during an eye test:

Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the lens within the eye which results to a decrease in vision. Those with cataracts experience trouble seeing true colours resulting in making everyday life activities such as driving, reading and seeing bright lights difficult.

 

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye diseases in which the optic nerve at the back of the eye is slowly destroyed. This results into a blockage causing poor blood supply to the vital optic nerve fibres – this disease is the leading cause of irreversible blindness.

 

Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic condition in which the levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood are too high. If untreated, high blood glucose levels can result in serious damage to your panaceas, heart, nerves and eyes.

Hypertension

Hypertension is the pressure of your blood against the inner walls of your arteries as it is pumped around the body by your heart. It can lead to serious health problems, such as a heart attack, a stroke, heart failure or kidney disease.

 

Macular Degeneration

This is the name given to a group of degenerative diseases of the retina that cause progressive, painless loss of central vision, affecting the ability to see fine detail, drive, read and recognise faces. The earlier the disease is detected, the more vision you are likely to retain.
