Visual Field Screening
This is a way to check for damage or disease that causes a blind spot. It is early detection and diagnosis of several eye conditions particularly glaucoma.
Aged macular degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration affects the vision you use when you’re looking directly at something, for example when you’re reading, looking at photos or watching television. AMD may make this central vision distorted or blurry and, over a period of time, it may cause a blank patch in the centre of your vision
A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil.
Conjunctivitis is a common condition that causes redness and inflammation of the thin layer of tissue that covers the front of the eye (the conjunctiva).
Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication of diabetes. It occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the cells at the back of the eye (known as the retina). If it isn’t treated, it can cause blindness.
Floaters, flashes and spots
Eye floaters are those tiny spots, specks, flecks and “cobwebs” that drift aimlessly around in your field of vision. While annoying, ordinary eye floaters and spots are very common and usually aren’t cause for alarm. Floaters and spots typically appear when tiny pieces of the eye’s gel-like vitreous break lose within the inner back portion of the eye.
Glaucoma is a condition which can affect sight, usually due to build-up of pressure within the eye. Glaucoma often affects both eyes, usually to varying degrees. One eye may develop glaucoma quicker than the other.
A red eye can be alarming but is commonly just a sign of conjunctivitis or another minor eye condition. If it is painful, there may be a more serious problem. In any case, you should see your GP for advice.
