Certain eye conditions can significantly impact your vision and make tasks like reading or driving challenging. At Eye Zone Inc in Cleveland, OH, we provide comprehensive eye exams to determine an accurate diagnosis and offer prompt treatment that can preserve your vision. Before visiting us, learn more about the conditions that we treat below:
Nearsightedness, Farsightedness, and Astigmatism
Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, causes blurry vision while looking at objects that may be far away. Farsightedness, also referred to as hyperopia, causes blurry vision while focusing on objects that are close up. Astigmatism can cause blurry vision while trying to see objects whether they are near or far. Farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism are refractive errors that occur due to an irregularity in the shape of the eyeball or lens, which prevents light from properly focusing on the retina.
Diabetes is a disease that can cause high blood sugar levels, which can damage small blood vessels. When the blood vessels behind the retinas become damaged, diabetic retinopathy can develop. This condition can lead to inflammation, retinal scarring, and blindness.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye conditions that progressively cause damage to the optic nerves, which are responsible for transmitting visual information between the eyes and brain. Glaucoma symptoms include blurry vision, tunnel vision, and seeing halos around bright lights.
Macular degeneration can commonly cause vision loss due to age. The condition occurs when the macular deteriorates over time. Sometimes, dry macular degeneration progresses to wet macular degeneration, which happens when abnormal blood vessels grow behind the macula and cause further damage.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome can lead to uncomfortable symptoms like redness, itching, watery eyes, light sensitivity, and blurry vision. This condition happens when there is nothing enough quality tears to lubricate your eyes. Dry eye can often occur from autoimmune diseases or allergies. Along with that, floaters can also sometimes cause dry eye, especially if you rub your eyes frequently.
